Sunday 6th September

 

Waterworks Open Day and Vintage Vehicles

 

11am – 4pm

 

Enjoy  an informative stroll around our Waterworks with everything fully open, restored machinery in operation and meet our volunteers who will be on hand to explain how it all used to work.

Learn  all about the progress we are making to restore our boilers and steam pumping engine! Work on restoring one of our boilers has now commenced, and we plan to be back in steam for 2016.

Join a free guided tour to find out all about the waterworks, and how it’s developed over the last 100 years.

Discover  the lime kilns up above the main works, where you can also watch the industrial narrow gauge railway at work. Follow our nature trail around the site and see what you can spot!

Relax  in our renowned Tea Room, offering a wide range of hot & cold drinks, sandwiches, toasties, snacks, cakes & ice creams and an outdoor BBQ with locally sourced burgers and sausages, all at a reasonable price. Please feel free to make use of the picnic tables around the site too.

Plus: our own bric-a brac and book stall – always plenty to buy!

Our theme for this Open Day is ‘Vintage Vehicles’

We’re expecting quite a few vintage vehicles to be heading for the Open Day – vintage cars, a fire engine or two and even a London bus! We are also welcoming a classic car club, who will be driving over during the day. All vehicles will be lined up for you to enjoy as part of your day at the Waterworks.
