Sandfields Pumping Station is a unique heritage site; however at this moment in time its biggest problem is the lack of public support. To save this valuable site is not a complicated process, it does not need vast amounts of money, or does it need a vast amount of your precious time, but I does need a show of public support.

This show of support should be directed in the first instance at the people who job it is to ensure that the grade II listed building is maintained and the section 106 agreement is complied with.

In this instance it is Lichfield District Council

Lichfield District Council has a Conservation Team, and a Senior Conservation Officer; Debbie Boffin.

Lichfield District Council

      Quite often projects this like this need far more then a physical presence, the knowledge that others would help if they could is very encouraging. I will keep updating this blog with any ongoing progress, feel free to chip in at any time, two heads are better than one.

  6. David, has the AIA been approached (I’m a member), and if so, what was their response? I was unaware of this place until I saw your pics on Flickr.

  7. Hi David, they’re the Association for Industrial Archaeology, and have some high profile members. I’ll do a search when I get a moment, and see if they’ve got it recorded anywhere.

  8. Neville Buchanan says:

    Hi David, AIA have advised that a Mr Ian Bapty is familiar with Sandfields. I don’t know whether he’s known to you or not.

    I just stumbled across this pumping station through a link from a stationary engine site. I am a huge steam fan with a small collection of real steam engines living in Sutton Coldfield, but strangely I have never heard of this station before, although I often visit Lichfield. I am a frequent visitor to Claymills pumping station in Burton Upon Trent but never realised there was another site in need, closer to me. It looks like I’ve just missed your most recent meeting but I am happy to do whatever I can for such a worthy cause. Please get in touch if I can help in any way.
    Paul B.

    I am surprised to find you do not give any contact email and/or address for the Friends of Sandfields Pumping Station on your Contacts page on this web site.

    • morturn says:

      Hi and thank you for your interest in Sandfields Pumping Station.

      We try not to put email addresses directly onto the webpage as this attracts webbotts looking for email addresses to send spam mail, and other unwanted things. You can contact directly by leaving a comment on the site, as you have done or leaving your details and any question you have at the bottom of the about page here

      We trust this replay is helpful and hope you will become a member of our group.

      Thanks again
