The Pumping Station

The sound of many clocks ticking, a slightly dusty smell and room after room of antiques, The Pumping Station in Cardiff is a great distraction from the modern world.

Several clocks ticking.

After posting about Jacob’s Market a few weeks ago, another blogger pointed me in the direction of The Pumping Station in Penarth Road in Grangetown.

The Pumping Station used to be a sewage works, but nowadays its packed with everything from vintage hats, fur, model trains, records and stained glass windows.

I had a lovely wander around poking through all the many odd items and trying on hats. There is a cafe in the middle so I got to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea.

The sound of several clocks ticking, sounds quite offbeat:
