The Grade II listed pumping station, dating from circa 1892, is now converted into a private residence, incorporating some original internal features. Seen here from the Ashby Canal side.

Snarestone Pumping Station

Built in the early 1890s by Hinckley Urban District Council for fresh water supply, the site made use of an existing coal exploration shaft. Later taken over by Leicester City Council, it was initially converted to electric operation, but subsequently closed completely. The buildings remain intact and have been converted to residential use.
