What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Five years ago it was Leawood Pumphouse near Cromford in Derbyshire.

The Grade II* listed building dates from 1949 and houses a Watt-type beam engine that pumped water from the River Derwent to the Cromford Canal until 1944 when the canal closed. The Pump House was restored in 1979 by the Cromford Canal Society and the engine is steamed periodically.
