A piece of rural Fenland is to get a new lease of a life – as a one bedroom house.
Planners have approved the conversion of the former pumping station in Mouth Lane, Guyhirn, to a two-storey, one bed house.
The pumping station was made redundant in 1979 and has sat empty since.
Peter Humphrey, the agent who drew up plans for the conversion, said: “The proposed development seeks to utilise an existing building with no dramatic changes being made to the exterior.
“The window openings are to be reused.”

Velux roof lights will serve the first floor with a lounge and kitchen/diner on the ground floor.
Planners believe the conversion “will bring back into use an existing building and will not adversely impact on the overall character of the area”.
