By the early 1950s it gradually became clear that Bridport’s water supply system needed upgrading as the town continued to grow. The pump was often broken down and many attempts were made to repair it. Water supplies were inconsistent and not able to deal with growing demand. A new motor was installed in 1952 with only limited success. By the 1960’s a new pump house was installed near the Elizabeth street entrance. This is still being used today.
