I went to the pumping station over the May Bank Holiday with my husband. We're neither of us particularly interested in steam or engineering but you don't have to be to enjoy the experience. We were blown away by the sheer size of the wheel in the C & D engine house - I was stood staring with my mouth open! The work that the volunteers have put into restoration is incredible. We loved the visit. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the tea and homemade cakes. I bake weekly but whoever made the lemon sponge for Sunday made a delicious cake! We've been on the website since and think that we'll become 'friends' of the pumping station to help just a little with ongoing restoration.
