I've noticed this building for while now as I've passed through Wolverhampton. Thought it was time I took a closer look. It's quite a mess inside. The floor is covered in pigeon poop and oil but theres some nice features and beautiful derelict light coming through the large partially boarded windows. Plenty of peely paint goodness. In the same perimeter of the station is house and garage workshop which were less interesting but as I was enjoying the derelict light on such a fine day I've also added these.

Couldn't find much specific history on this particular building.

Listing: Built c1852 by Jones and Treasure of London, pursuant to the Wolverhampton Waterworks Act of 1850. Locally Listed, approved March 2000.





Heres how it looked in the 1940s​
