It has been a c.£900,000, three year project (2017-2020), grant financed by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (‘The Fund’), through National Lottery Players. Crofton Pumping Station is owned by the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust (KACT), a charitable company.
None of this could have been achieved without the commitment of the Trustees of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust, the dedication and hard work of all the volunteers and staff at Crofton, and the funding advice and support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
We now have a restored weatherproof building, with significant roof repairs, external repointing and treatment of damp and timbers, and an electrical system which meets current requirements.
