Old Pump House
(formerly listed
as No 36)
ST 4938 7/80 21.6.50.
Probably C17. Small row of cottages with end to street rebuilt as pump-rooms in
1752. 1 storey with attic in gable. Random rubble and brick with ashlar dressings.
Gable-end has quoin pilasters supporting entablature and panelled parapet. In
centre is a blocked round-headed arch with rusticated quoins and voussoirs. Sides
are set back and have blind windows with moulded architraves and keystones. High
moulded plinth. Part of return elevation has similar treatment, but with sash
windows, glazing bars and round-headed entrance with flanking pilasters and triangular
pediment. Semi-circular fanlight with intersecting tracery. Double doors of 3
panels each (2 removed and glazed). West part of building retains the original
2 storeys. Painted brick. Pantile roof. 3-light casements. Blocked-up archways.
This was the Pump House where chalybeate waters were drunk during Glastonbury's
short-lived popularity as a spa in mid-C18.
Copper Beech and Old Pump House form a good group.
