About
We are a small volunteer-run museum, housed in a Victorian sewage-pumping station. Displays relate to the history of transport and industry in Walthamstow and the surrounding area, and to the history of the Pumphouse site. We have two Marshall & Co horizontal steam engines dating from 1896 which are thought to be the only remaining mirrored pair in existence. They are run on compressed air on the last Sunday of the month. We are open on Sundays, 11am-4pm in summer and 11am-3pm in winter, and entry is FREE.

A Pumping Museum
Aug 2019
Walthamstow Pump House, what a gem! A Museum to the pump, be it steam, diesel, electric, kerosene or gasoline, there's a pump for you. See a twin-piston steam behemoth run on air. Workshop demonstrations of the steam-powered victorian workshop. A display of old underground coaches graces the forecourt and a fire brigade shed of treasures along with some serious train-ware awaits enthusiasts. A superb and very cheap cafe is on the premises that selling batches at a pound, cake at fifty pence, etc. to support this small but wonderful musuem.
