Sitting between the main railway line and one of the canals in Taunton is the Firepool Pumphouse. It was used to get water from the canals, and store it in the huge tank on top, ready for filling steam trains with. Obviously steam trains aren’t used any more so this place closed.
It’s currently waiting redevelopment into a posh restaurant complex.
Inside is quite stripped, and the floor is frickin’ sketchy.
Holes are everywhere in the floor. But some give a tantalising glimpse to what’s below…
Yeh, the pumps are still in there. Couldn’t get a very good pic as it was sooo tight in there and full of crap & junk.
