Lichfield Waterworks Trust

The Lichfield Waterworks Trust is a group of Volunteers working to renovate the Victorian pumping station at Sandfields in Lichfield.  This Crowd Funder is being set up to raise £5000 to get the Victorian Beam Engine moving again.  This engine is one of only 4 left in the country.  It was built by Jonah & George Davies in Tipton and installed in 1873.  It worked for 50 years, pumping clean water to the Black Country during the Industrial Revolution to help eradicate Cholera.

The engine was taken out of service on 1927 and has not moved for almost 100 years.  There is no steam generation left at Sandfields, but we plan to animate with the hydraulic power.
