Langford Works Essex
The Langford Works has been extracting water from the Rivers Chelmer, Ter and Blackwater and supplying water to Southend-on-Sea since the 1920s. The pumping station originally powered by steam delivered purified water to Oakwood Reservoir. To maintain an efficient water supply to the ever growing population a new electric plant came into operation in 1963 as part of an extension of the Hanningfield Raw Water Pumping Station. Problems renovating and difficulties with extensions of the pumping station and treatment plant half a mile away it seemed practical to construct a new works and in 1970 the new works were completed. Since, further expansion has taken place the old pumping station is now home to the Museum of Power which is open to the general public, the old treatment plant was demolished.
