The hydraulic pumping station was added to the dock system to provide a power supply.

The pump house was built in 1878 and has been lovingly restored as a cosy traditional British pub.

The Pump House on Hartley Quay in Liverpool Docks, is one of the most distinctive buildings. It remains beautiful as ever on Hartley Quay, with its red brick ornate chimney and bold white lettering.

Really the power house, water at high pressure was fed through underground pipes to terminals along the quay sides and was used to power cranes, hoists and lifts. Many of the ornate cast iron wall cranes from this time can still be seen on the warehouses.

Its ornate tower is only Grade II listed, but an unmissable landmark.

Situated in the heart of the World Heritage Site, the pump house is always surrounded by delights, such as visiting ships and steam charabancs selling ice creams! You can eat there and sit outside, really immersed in the historic feats and treats.
