The Friends of Bratch Steam Gala - June 2005
 
 
The Bratch Pumping Station at Wombourne, South Staffordshire, one of less than 50 remaining steam pumping stations in England. Built in 1895 for Bilston Corporation and inside the magnificently ornate "gothic fairy castle" listed building are housed two vertical triple-expansion steam engines that raised pure drinking water from a depth of 160 feet, these wells being fed by 600ft deep bore holes.
Each Engine, weighing 400 tons and measuring 14 feet by 7 feet and 25 feet in height, capable of raising one million gallons of water in 20 hours, and pumping it to a reservoir 350 feet higher, and 4 miles away in Wolverhampton.
