The Pumping Station is on Yeoman Street and is the rectangular building pointing to the north-east. There are labels and they may help. These are pictures I took of the outside of the pumping station.

It is a building of simple practicality rather than architectural merit. Hopefully the new building works will improve it.

This image was one I clipped from the Tideway Tunnel site.

This is one of those sites, which if they used some good project planning and got a keen architect to skin and landscape everything properly, they could create a building that fitted in to the area well.

  5. Thank you for the pics. In October we visited London with my daughter and Tideway were very kind to us and added us to a boat tour on the Thames River. I have written a note for the Israeli water magazine, but they are slow to publish it. It is a very large and ingenuous solution to London sewage problems. BTW, how does Carillion bankruptcy affect it all? Greeting Jaim Klein
