    Post Old Sewrage Pumping Station Arbroath Pic Heavy

    Just Back fro our holidays and found several interesting buildings and structures.
    At the back of the caravan site which were are on is an old sewerage pumping station control room.
    It has been there as long as I remember well since the 1950's anyway.
    As a child I used to try and sneak into the compound but the fence was well maintained and usually had water board workers there on the week days. The compund used to contain an efluent treatment tank with a water sprinkler, that has now been removed, some of the fencing that surrounded the pond is still lying in the underbrush.
    Across the railway line in another proud structure, this was the pump house and is immpenetrable, the main doors clad in steel screwed to the concrete.
    It was decommisioned a few years ago with the construction of a new larger facility nearby.
    Last year I discovered the fence was damaged and gained entry but had no idea about this website and any use for the pics I took.

    The long road up the hill.

    The main gate and the new hole in the fence.
