Head for the imposing chimney stack of the pumping station rising out of the marshy Somerset Levels and come and see our ‘new’ 1924 Robey Portable Boiler in steam.  The use of steam power on ‘The Levels’ to reduce flooding and control drainage of the low lying moorlands commenced at Westonzoyland in about 1830, when the first of eight pumping stations was built on the banks of the River Parrett. Originally equipped with a beam engine and scoop wheel, this was replaced in 1861 by the now preserved Easton Amos land drainage machine, still in its original engine house and the recent recipient of a prestigious Engineering Heritage Award from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The original buildings, comprising the engine house, cottage, forge and chimney are Grade II* listed by Historic England and together with a modern exhibition hall, engine shed and pump room, house a fascinating collection of working stationary steam engines and pumps acknowledged to be the largest collection in the South of England. Two rooms in the Attendant’s Cottage and the Scullery are open to view. Other exhibits of general interest include a small waterwheel; Lister deep well pumps; Blacksmith’s forge; Lancashire boiler and 2’ narrow gauge […]

Step back in time when you visit our Edwardian Waterworks! Twyford first started pumping water over 100 years ago, during the Edwardian era. This Open Day will commemorate those days, looking back to the times when everything was worked by steam, and looking forward as well to when our boiler and steam pumping engine will be working again. Join in the fun by coming along dressed in Edwardian attire and we’ll give you free admission! http://www.twyfordwaterworks.co.uk/

Our theme for this Open Day is ‘Vintage Vehicles’ The Waterworks welcomes classic cars enjoying a run out to the pumping station, and other vintage vehicles on display.

Our very popular end of season rally – steam engines, cars, stationary engines, demonstrations, displays, and miniature railway rides (free to children). Find out about the story of drinking water in our new Discovery Zone. 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. If you wish, join a free Guided Tour to find out all about the Waterworks. Children can follow their own trail looking for clues to the story of the site. Can you find ‘Twyford Toad’? Learn about the progress we are making to restore our boilers and steam pumping engine! 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 three acre site and see what you can spot!
