If you look across the fields behind the pumping station, you may be able to just make out the roof of the Great Barn at Great Park Farm. This was a stud farm for the breeding of heavy horses during the Wars of the Roses. It was part of the Manor of Mortimer that Henry VIII gave to each of his six wives in turn as part of their dowry. Not many of them lived to enjoy it.
