    Default Thorpe malsor pump house


    Hay folks visited this site with chris34 AKA cameraphone urbex and myself alex76 (beforeits toolate).
    Now there is not much history about on this place all I can tell you that the reservoir and pump house was built in 1904 supplying drinking water for the surrounding villages and was decommissioned in the late 1970's which is now privately owned and used for trout fishery.
    Now many apologies for the lack of externals as we was kindly asked too leave by the fastest old lady who I have ever see move so fast across ruff terrain :shocked:. On with the pics



































    Thanks for looking ;)

    Was a different one this... That old lady was quick on her toes though

    To be fair she was OK when she caught up with us, just not too happy we hadn't asked permission :)

    Helps to ask first if it is owned but I fear a few more inflitrations wil cause them to start being a bit more up tight with people. Nice photo's
