6/59 Pump House approx 25m south
- east of The Old Farmhouse,
Pump house. Circa 1886-88, the top was relined after damage in the Great
Storm of 1987. Built of brick; an irregular mixture of red and ochre-yellow
brick although the colours are used deliberately on the cornices and window
heads. Tower-like structure, square in plan. There is a round-headed opening
on the south west side which is boarded whilst the other 3 sides have small
openings at ground level. At the top there is a corbelled brick cornice over
a course of dentils. Above the brick weathers back to a narrow shaft with a
water tank at the top. The pump worked a nearby artesian well.
According to the owner this was the first tube-bored artesian well in Kent.
It is approximately 860 feet down to the Thames aquefer. It was dug to serve
Simmons brewery based at Style Place, and is said to have been pumped to a
glassworks. It remains as part of an unusually complete group of listed
brewery buildings around Style Place Farmhouse (q.v.).
