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.At the heart of the site these buildings were constructed in progressive stages from 1898 through to 1935 which explains the three date stones recording the year when each major addition was made. Here we can find the steam pumping engine, the boiler house and the diesel pumping plant as well as the tea room. The front part of the structure contains the two deep wells from which Southern Water still pump up to twenty five million litres of water every day.
