Pumping stations are dotted around the Somerset Levels to help manage its rather determined proclivity to flood. As the Levels are only marginally above sea level, it doesn’t take much to turn the area into a giant pond and water management practices have been in use since the Roman times. This pumping station sits right next to the River Parrett Trail and River Isle is a fine sliver of land in the Southmoor Main Drain which you must walk over to cross the water.
