Hydraulic Sewage Lift


Hydraulic Sewage Lift : c.1900 by Messrs Adams of York. Tall plain
cast-iron column with a simple moulded plinth and cornice carries a
tall hexagonal boarded cap with a pyramidal felt roof with a pointed
finial. This contains a pump and header tank for providing pressure
to force sewage over a rise and into Chester's system.
The lift, though no longer in use, is a significant local landmark and
is maintained in good repair.
