    Default The pumping station..admin and treatment blocks


    So this place has been a bane for me over the years.three years of trying.last year I succsessfly managed to get in the pump house.but the larger building at the back eluded me.anyway I found a way in this time.the block is really two.the old Victorian part.and the newer part which was offices.maybe for industrial use too.i am not sure of the set up off the site.i had to enter the two blocks seperatly.the newer block housed a cabinet makers,but I think looking at the state of it they have long vacated.the old bit is stripped.but some lovely Windows,and a lovely traditional spiral staircase which is a favourite of mine now.it was worth it for that alone really.finally pleased to crack this last bit.here is a link to the pump house report what sits opposite it

    https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/mai...n-norfolk.html

    The old Victorian treatment block











































    The newer more modern block.not as interesting as the other one and cluttered with stuff.



















    The original outside toilet.





    The original railways love news running between the pump house and main building.

    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Remember the pump-house report from a while back. The rest of this place is equally amazing. Again, fantastic work Mikey.

    Nicely done. Looks like the newer building has a lot of recyclable wood. The building looks in good shape.

    Looks like a run-of-the-mill ordinary workshop to make shuttering. Nothing in particular special, well except for the amount of recyclable plywood going about. Was there more? I'm unshockable.
