Dirtness Pumping Station (SE 749098) was built in 1867 in polychrome brick on the North Engine Drain between the parishes of Crowle and Belton on the Isle of Axholme.

It housed two 50hp Watt engines driving a 33ft (10.1m) diameter scoop wheel which was capable of lifting 1200 tonnes of water per hour.

It is still in use with electric pumps.

"The museum occupies part of the former RAF Sandtoft, an operational bomber airfield during the Second World War.

RAF Sandtoft was disposed of by the RAF in 1958 and the site was acquired for the museum in November 1969.

Since that time, volunteers have transformed a barren site into a museum with the addition of workshop, vehicle depot and exhibition building"

Temple Belwood

Temple Belwood, on the eastern edge of Belton (Isle of Axholme), took its name from its original owners, the Knights Templar.

William Johnson replaced an Elizabethan house with a new building (shown here) in 1787.  The architect was Samuel Foster.

It was developed as a boarding house by new owners in 1900 and later as a school.

The walled kitchen garden is the principal survivor of this substantial house.

More details about this house and its owners can be found in T R Leach and R Pacey's book, 'Lost Lincolnshire Country Houses: Volume 1', published by SLHA.  Buy a copy.

In 1877 J Wooler & Co of Laisterwick Foundry, Bradford, erected a small plant for generating coal gas at this country house.

This plan was submitted along with a detailed quotation for £254.
