Chingford Mill Pumping
TQ 39 SE Station



Pumping Station. Dated 1895. Built for the East London Waterworks Co.
The Project engineer William Booth Bryan. Brick in flemish bond with
soft red brick and terracotta dressing, same box framing. Roofs of
tile with swept eaves and exposed rafter ends. The plan is derived
from a typical parish church plan; at the centre a tower of three
stages with round-arched openings. To the southwest a single storey
wing reminiscent of a chancel. To the northeast a tall nave of 3 bays,
flat arched windows to north face set in segmental-arched recess;
gable-facing elevation has large tupaitite and flat arched window set
in round-arched recess; gable head tile hung and box framing; low
single storey wing to return long transept arm has a very long strip
roof dormer; the facing gable end has a pair of round-arched openings
to ground, six-round-arched windows above and a gable head of box
framing. At junction of tower and "nave" is a single-storey, gable
facing porch with decorative framing to head. Above a plaque in red
brick and terracotta inscribed: "E.L.W.W.Co. Erected 1895". The style
is noteworthy, a variant of the style popularised by Richard Norman
Shaw and usually found on domestic buildings; its use on a pumping
station is most unusual, as is the church-like plan. Forms a group
with the Turbine House and metal railing, Lower Hall Lane.
