Hughes Pump House - National Trust Property

Erected in 1865, this housed a 60-inch Cornish beam-pumping engine, which operated until the mine closed in 1923. It pumped water from the adjacent shaft to a depth of 366 metres and from Taylors Shaft, about 300 metres to the North, to a depth of 788 metres. Hughes Pump House is now listed as a protected property by the National Trust of South Australia.

Getting Involved

The National Trust estimates that it has over 1,000 volunteers in South Australia. Volunteers come from all walks of life - school students, Mums and Dads at home, retired professionals and the like. In the last financial year they contributed around 125,000 hours (worth $2.5 million) to conserving South Australian heritage and undertook a wide variety of roles within the National Trust of South Australia. If you are interested in joining our team, please contact the National Trust SA Office on (08) 8202 9200 or via the website.
