Steam Events The Pumping Station is in steam 8 times a year on the dates listed below with all engines running including the James Watt beam engines, the Linby colliery winding engine and miniature railway.

Underground Reservoir Tours We also offer tours of the underground reservoir during steam events which run every half hour from 11.30am – 3.30pm. An additional charge of £2 per adult and £1 per child aged between 5-16 applies and spaces on the tour bus are limited to 20 people per tour. Please note that the number of tours per day may be reduced or increased depending on visitor demand. Tickets for the tours are purchased from the Superintendent’s House on the day of visiting.
