A new high capacity borehole pump was installed in 1952 at the Waterworks in Woodhall Road to pump water from the borehole up to the town reservoir (next to Uplands Middle School). It was capable of extracting 30.000 gallons per hour and forcing the water up the incline to the reservoir. It replaced the previous horizontal steam engine and ram pump. The old name for Woodhall Road was Waterworks Lane.

The market town of Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, has a long and fascinating history. Much of the way of life in the town since the invention of photography has been caught on camera. The Sudbury Museum Trust has developed this website to show and provide information on a selection of these photographs.
