Welcome to Twyford Waterworks 

Main Building

Come and discover the story of water extraction, softening and supply over the last 100 years at this Scheduled Ancient Monument located close to Winchester in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. 

Restored by volunteers of the Twyford Waterworks Trust we are open on selected days throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Events - please see our Events page for full details.

 

We also welcome group visits by prior arrangement and can provide guided tours tailored to your interests.

 

We look forward to meeting you at ‘The Works’ during 2016.
