Tees Cottage Pumping Station

From 1849 the Tees Cottage Pumping Station revolutionised water supply in Darlington and Teesside by offering cleaner, piped water to inhabitants who had previously relied on wells and rainwater tubs. The aim of this project is to improve the understanding of the heritage of Tees Cottage Pumping Station as well as improving the accessibility of the site to a wide-range of visitors, such as schools and the general public.
