Monthly Progress Meeting of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust, formally known as the Friends of Sandfields Pumping Station

Monthly Progress Meeting of the Lichfield Waterworks Trust, formally known as the Friends of Sandfields Pumping Station.

The Lichfield Waterworks Trust is a Community Incorporated Organisation, registered with the charities commission who are fighting to save the Grade II* listed building know as Sandfields Pumping Station for the benefit of the community.

English Heritage has designated Sandfields Pumping Station as a building that has ‘more than special interest’, hence the reason it has been listed at Grade II*

Unfortunately, what some see as Lichfield’s most significant pieces of Industrial Heritage, a true hidden gem form the past is now a building at risk.

All are welcome to become involved in this challenging but rewarding project.
