Having noticed a strange building from the train on several trips over the viaduct through Northwich, seeing the doors open on Sunday was too good an opportunity to miss. The building is an Edwardian Pumping station and the two gentlemen tending the engines were both friendly and informative. There are also display boards providing further information about the history of the building. It was well worth the 50p entrance fee and we are planning a return trip to see the pumps actually working (they were currently awaiting spares). Having lived in the Northwich area for over 50 years, the existance of the pumping station and being able to see it operate was both a surprise and a delight. Certainly worth a visit, if you are interested in history or engineering.

My word - when looking round Northwich one comes across a few gems and here is one - but not always open - so check it out first. You have the pleasure of visiting a really wonderful bit of engineering history, in the pretty cul de sac of historic residential Weir Street - with it's span of domestic structures from prime Victoriana to 20th Century variety reflecting all strata of society - and to cap it all - you can then have a look at the weir itself with it's capacity to control the flow of the River Weaver following which you can walk up the river bank as far as you wish, coming across the outstanding in sport - the Northwich Rowing Club and immediately after it the impressive campus of the historic Sir John Deane's College - formerly the much respected Grammar School - one of the four great schools of Cheshire.

I took our rambling group on the Water Trail and we included a visit to the pumping station. What a beautiful building this is. It is very interesting and it was great to see the machinery working, after quite a bit of effort. We all learnt a lot and would like to say a big thank you to the two men (I've forgotten their names) who opened up for us.

Viv, It was great to welcome you and your group to Dock Rd and we are very glad that you enjoyed it so much. As you know, it's Dock Road's centenary year and we are planning a celebration on Sunday 27th May in conjunction with an Edwardian themed day being run by the Friends of the nearby Weaver Hall Museum & Workhouse. There will be a traditional brass band concert by Stretford Band and various other "goings-on". Hopefully, the weather will co-operate but we have some contingency arrangements just in case! Best regards to all your group, Wardens Gerry & Dave

Take the kids out to see the pumping station and follow off with a visit to the nearby salt museum, two outings in one go.

Never managed to find this open, it is hidden away by the river Weaver close to the arches so can be incorporated in a walk by the river, nice circular walk from Northwich to the Blue Bridge and back on the other side then crossing the locks and the new Riversdale Bridge. Also close to the Salt Museum.

Very sorry you didn't find us open: the best bits are inside! There is a noticeboard with the times on but its got ratherobscured and we're trying to reorganise the gardening team. We're open from 2pm to 5pm on Sundays & Bank Holidays from Easter to the end of September - so I'm afraid you've missed the regular sessions for this summer. But we can open for Group visits at any mutually convenient time throughout the year. Just call me on 07970 207 941 or email gerry@dockroad.org and I'm sure we can come up with something. By the way, look out for special events next summer: it's the Station Centenary!

The Dock Road Pumping Station is a fabulous gem from bygone days. It no longer pumps sewage across the river next door to the treatment works, but it has all of its machinery intact and best of all it works. I organised a trip up to Cheshire and managed to grab a visit to this little gem. Gerry one of the guides showed us the pair of two single-cylinder Crossley 'N'-type gas-fired engines and the two Haywood Tyler triplex lift and force pumps. Amazing engineering from the Edwardian era. Gerry even got one of the engines working for us. The engines were linked to 2 pumps which were capable of pumping over 9,500 galls an hour. That’s a lot of sewage; one can only imagine the stench as the collection pit is below the floor that the engines are located. Thankfully a new pumping station was built and now all there is below the floor is clean water that is pumped round to show visitors how it worked long ago. It is a wonderful little building that so nearly disappeared and would have been lost forever like a lot of our heritage. It is open to the public every Sunday and bank Holiday Monday from 2:00pm until 5:00pm, from Easter Sunday through to the last Sunday in September. There is no entry fee but donations are welcome as this goes towards the day-to-day running costs of this hidden gem.
