Rear of former pumping station, Bennett Road, Headingley
Rear of former pumping station, Bennett Road, Headingley
I only saw this building from this side and there is nothing to indicate its function though I guessed at maybe a former school building. In fact it turns out to have been originally a water pumping station, built 1879-80 for Leeds Corporation Waterworks to pump water from the Washburn Valley reservoirs to the high-level service reservoirs at Moortown and Bramley (the latter was reconstructed in 2013, see SE2335 : Bramley service reservoir). For the other side of the building, which was later turned into a pub, see SE2736 : Headingley Taps at night. Listed grade 2 (list entry 1375262).
