The Pump House

The Pump House contains the mighty steam driven pumping engines which supplied the power for hydraulic cranes and capstans throughout the dock at Ellesmere Port.

 

Look out for...

The giant boilers.  They have trouble with limescale, just like your kettle at home. But to clean these monsters a small person had to climb inside with a hammer and tap the limescale away by hand!
