Re: What is this building?


[re: Whitehall11] [link to this post]
 
Whatever it is it isn't registered on land registry. In which case, makes it quite old so I wonder if it's something to do with Water company, maybe a small pumping station or Telephone. I can see a reference to Wensley W.B.S. on BT checker for the post code checker but no mention of this anywhere else.

Are you sure those 'Fans Running' are not water pumps !.

I think this is the best guess - It's got a little T Logo (legacy telecom). The noises from the shed definitely sound like computer fans, and not water pumps.

It could also potentially be a booster for the rural Winster exchange 3/4km North?

Seems to an electricity sub station.

More likely to be a natural gas valve control room. If it was an electricity substation there would be electrical flash warning symbols on it.

Gas valve installations do make a noise of their own due to the gas flow, plus there may well be ventilation fans running the whole time. OR ducting nearby could be a complete coincidence or could be for control/telemetry lines to the building.

Its almost certainly nothing to do with telecoms.

Have look on all four sides, close up pictures of any signs or notices.

I can see on the B5057 adjacent to this building are two chambers in the road, one small / medium and one small which have been helpfully tarmaced over from the google pictures. Making it difficult to make out the markings.

It doesn’t match the style of even the smallest telephone exchanges that I’ve been in. I don’t think it is anything related to Openreach (as it is now), and does look more like a substation but yes it’s curious that there are no warning signs.

Is the T on the door the old GPO T logo?
