Claverton Pumping Station

The Claverton Pumping Station is a rare surviving example of the technology of the Late Georgian – Regency – period.

The pump started work in 1813, the year Pride and Prejudice was published. This amazing pump uses the power of the River Avon to lift water up 48ft into the Kennet and Avon Canal above. Burning no fuel and making no waste it is the ultimate in environmentally friendly technology.

If you want to see this unique technology in action visit us on one of our pumping days.
