History:

This tall red and black brick building was constructed in 1865 to 1871 by Bazalgette to pump sewage from the North and South Interceptor Sewers to Whitlingham Sewage farm. It was known as Trowse Pumping Station, and also pumped into the adjacent river using three beam engines. The works were fed by gravity, and the pumps were used for ejection onlly.

The system was abandoned when New Mills Station opened in 1899. Trowse station was modernised in 1910 when Whitlingham sewage works replaced sewage farm, and again in 1961.



First explore in a good few years with another fellow explorer @d3stasucks :)

Headed to Trowse on Saturday after seeing a couple of reports on here from a few years back, wanted to see the condition of it now and get some more photos as I live very close by!

As we got there it was getting dark, and with being told the neighbours around the station were not the most welcoming we snuck round until we were covered by the overgrowth!

It is not in the best of states with most windows smashed and then either covered or bricked up, no access points that we could find apart from to a loo!

Managed to get some photos, not the best mind as I was using my phone... (will be investing in a camera soon!)

You can actually get inside this, I went recently, and it has some very interesting things inside, such as, old paperwork, books and machinery, plus old army stuff.

Definitely worth snapping some pics there.

My only warning is there was quite a few wasps floating about so be careful!
