Welcome to Twyford Waterworks
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.
Our next Open Day……
Sunday 5th July
Waterworks Open Day & Miniature Steam
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 theme for this Open Day is Miniature Steam, so there’ll be even more to see!
