Having lived down the road for years I thought it was about time we took a visit to the pumping station while in steam.
Opened our eyes to actually how big the whole place is and what is involved. We took the tour to the underground reservoir which was interesting. My little boy enjoyed the ride on steam train.
We did feel the childrens play park needed some maintenance, very overgrown with nettles and in places was very tired. Also having to pay extra for the childrens activities bumped up our cost of a family day out, taking them to the workshop and on the train plus the underground tour....all added up to quite abit more on top of the initial entrance cost.
Definately a day my grandads would have loved, shame they are not here to see it.
