    im a volenteer at the Abbey pumping station in leicester and we have 4 massive beam engines built in 1892 by gimsons. the flywheels are 21ft across and 21tons each
    Thats right Wayne. Unfortunately the Beam Engine has been removed but its still a gorgeous building no matter what. I have been to the Abbey Station and its quite overwhelming. I really wished I could have got in and I am considering contacting the right Authority to see if they would allow me access.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Some cool pics BS - my other half and I went there a couple of months ago - looks interesting inside. Perhaps we should re-do a recce for access?

    While I was there Man there was a bloke come past and I asked him whether he knew anything about the Pumping Station. He said had I tried to get in. I replied that I had only taken some Exterior shots that was all. He the amazed by saying that the place was not all that well secured as wel because there were some kids in there recently and some Homeless people as well. So in answer to you I think it may be well worth another look as it really is a Magnificent Building. I could see inside through the Bars and I guess that was what whetted the appetite even more, its bloody Majestic!
