Old Pump House Retains Industrial Heritage

eoman Rainguard rainwater systems were used to help reintroduce an industrial heritage style to The Old Pump House in Warton. Originally erected in 1923 as a water pumping station for Atherstone and surrounding villages and


decommissioned in the late 1980s, the pump house was then bought in the early 90s and after a scheme for a hotel development fell through was converted into a home. The property was then sold in 2015 to current owners Ian and Karen Callender.

“Though the pump house had under gone a complete transformation into a residential property the previous owners, whilst carrying out the renovation to their own preferences, in our opinion designed out some of the industrial heritage. When we purchased the property, it was our intention to

restore some of these features.” Ian explained. Wanting to replace the white plastic gutters and downpipes at the front of the house with a rainwater system that would reflect such qualities, various avenues were searched. The result of which was Yeoman Rainguard whose XL Aluminium range ticked all the boxes when it came to style, ease of installation and durability whilst also being cost effective. “It was great to have an expert on hand, in the form of Yeoman Rainguard’s Area Sales Manager, to discuss options and fitting requirements as well as them carrying out a site survey in order to provide a no risk supply of all the components.” said Ian. Yeoman Rainguard 130 x 100mm deep flow half round XL Aluminium gutters were installed giving real impact to the house frontage.100mm dia.

downpipes were added below Cast Aluminium Motif Hoppers helping to further emphasise the desired effect. Finished in a durable yet stylish black polyester coating the aluminium rainwater system will provide the house with 30 + years of maintenance free service.
