The Aldgate Pump – starts work

The 18th century Aldgate Pump, at the corner of Leadenhall & Fenchurch Street in the City, is being restored this summer… Work includes commissioning a handmade iron lantern, 1.5 m high, a replica of the original lost from its top some time between 1900 and 1907. The new lantern will light this celebrated corner of the City every night of the year. The London Stone Conservation team will be on site until late August.
