The Whitley Pump team used an image of the real Whitley Pump c.1910 in an information sheet for our walk around Christchurch conservation area on Saturday 9 September.
One of the people on our walk noticed a stinkpipe in the picture hiding amongst the tram poles, lamp posts and trees behind the pump. This was a rather fine and slender pipe with a crown on top! The houses in the postcard on Christchurch Road are now part of the Christchurch conservation area.
The walk around Christchurch Conservation Area was one of three walks that the Whitley Pump put on for Heritage Open Days 2017. We would like to thank everyone who came on the walk and made it a success. We are looking forward to doing something similar next year.
