Our next Open Day.....
Sunday 2nd October
11am – 4pm
Enjoy an informative stroll around our Waterworks with everything fully open, restored machinery in operation and our volunteers 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!
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 – enjoy a day at the Works!
Plus: our own bric-a bric and book stall – always plenty to buy!
Our very popular end of season rally - steam engines, cars, stationary engines, demonstrations, displays and more! Come and help make this a great end to a good year for the Waterworks.
The Waterworks will be fully open with restored machinery in operation, together with the industrial narrow gauge railway.
