When It Comes to Supplying Water It is Something Undoubtedly to Get Steamed Up About!
These days we take it for granted that when we turn on the tap, out comes high quality water.
But how is it moved about? The answer is in pipes, propelled with the aid of high stress pumps.
But in the 1900s significantly reliance was offered to steam power to lift water from deep wells into treatment operates. Then the clean water requirements to be pumped to local reservoirs constructed on higher-ground for distribution by gravity to homes and firms.
Giants of Brede
In the 1960s, a lot of of our Victorian and Edwardian engineering masterpieces were demolished, but some survived, such as the Giants of Brede steam pumping engines.
Just six miles from Hastings stands the Brede Waterworks website, where two of its original triple expansion steam engines are housed in Grade II listed buildings.
At Brede you will see several ‘period’ examples of British engineering being renovated to impressive higher requirements.
Initial there is a 410hp triple expansion steam pumping engine constructed by Tangyes of Birmingham in 1904 and restored to original colours for its centenary.
It is housed in the original waterworks building constructed by the Hastings Corporation Water Division.
Secondly, there is an additional engine to a more modern design and style, installed in 1940 despite the commence of Planet War Two.
Numbered 5058, researchers have confirmed it to be the last of its variety supplied by Worthington Simpson of Newark and its 420hp is capable of pumping 3.5 million gallons per day against a lift of 515ft into the service reservoirs at Fairlight and Baldslow.
Thirdly, a variety of water artefacts from an earlier collection kept by Folkestone and Dover Water Services is displayed in the old boiler property.
A noteworthy exhibit is the very first triple expansion horizontal steam pumping engine created by the Simpsons in 1889. All the engines are at the moment getting run by compressed air but will in due course be operated by steam.
In its heyday 33 men were employed at the waterworks. Numerous lived locally and there is a fascinating social history story nevertheless to be researched.
