It’s interesting to note that a third of the water requirements for this area are supplied by the Springhead pumping Station in Willerby. This station was recently restored as part of Yorkshire Water’s commitment to the history and beauty of the area. Springhead had fallen into ruins over the past 50 years and the decision was made to bring it back to its former glory rather than have it as a neglected old building in a beautiful setting.

William Birch & Sons, a very capable restoration company, carried out the work taking great care to remain within the rules that protects a Grade 2 listed building. The challenge was accepted and now Willerby has an excellent historic and still working building to show off to visitors.
