Fulwell Pumping Station


Fulwell Pumping Station was built in 1853, designed by Thomas Hawksley. The water pumping station is located to the north of Fulwell, near Cut Throat Dean, which marks the boundary between Sunderland and South Tyneside. The station began operating by 1856, powered by two 70 horsepower rotative pumping engines.[1]. The pumping was electrified in the 1950s/60s. The Gothic-style brick engine house and boiler house are Grade II listed. The cottage and stable for the pumping station are separately Grade II listed. Thomas Hawksley also designed the nearby Cleadon Water Tower and Ryhope Pumping Station (now museum).
