The Society was formed in 1994 with the purpose of restoring the triple expansion steam pumping engines that remained on the Brede site. Two Tangye engines with their ram pumps and well pumps were installed as part of the original Waterworks concept in 1904. They were joined in 1940 by a third pump manufactured by Worthington Simpson as part of the Darwell Reservoir Project and all three units operated until the end of steam in 1964. Sadly one of the original Tangye pumps was broken up in 1969 but it is very fortunate that the two other examples remain largely intact.Over the years other examples of water pumping engines have been saved and brought to Brede for restoration and display. Acting as a non-profit-making company and a registered charity, the Society’s declared aims are to restore and operate heritage water pumping artefacts from the water industry and to educate the public in the technologies associated with the water pumps and the role they play in bringing safe drinking water to the home. We operate the pumps throughout each open-day. Our Guides will be on hand to tell the story of how the water was drawn from the large wells penetrating […]

This long running established Toy Collectors Fair, started as an Autojumble and Collectors Fair on the 8th November 1980. A previous Autojumble Event had closed on the 7th of May 1979, which had taken place in the Agricultural Hall area of the Maidstone Market. At this period of time, this was a vibrant Cattle, Poultry, Fruit and Vegetable General County Town Market. The success of this Autojumble encouraged the then organisers to arrange another Autojumble for the Saturday 24th October 1981, followed by another booked for the October 1982. During the 1981 event, Jim Mills a trader in Collectable Toys suggested that a Swapmeet was set up. (Toy Fairs were originally Swapmeets, where individuals swapped around items within collections, unlike Toy Fairs which became regular stallholders and dealers) Information on a vacated date was booked for the Saturday 28th February 1982 titled “The Mid Kent Toy Collectors Fair” with following additional dates. The Autojumble section was dropped through lack of support although the Toy Fair continued to trade in the Victorian Agricultural Hall until 1998 when the event moved into the new Market Hall after a major rebuild and redevelopment of the Market area. After 23 years the long standing […]

A great weekend to experience the wonderful sounds of mechanical organs from large fairground organs to small hand organs. Milton Keynes Museum will be transporting visitors to the days of fairground fun with the return of its popular Organ Festival this October. Organs were the soundtrack of the fairground, and the music making machines are still a thrill for those who remember the charming machines from their youth. Visitors will be able to hear the historic organs playing just as they used to while youngsters would have soaked up all the fun of the fair with its toffee apples, hoopla and thrilling rides. And the Organ Festival is a fine opportunity to show visiting youngsters the magic to be found – and heard –  with the mechanical players. Many of the exhibitors are travelling to take part in the sound-sational weekend, which is being hosted  7th & 8th October, 11am – 4.30pm From petite music boxes to fairground centre-of-attractions, the museum will be dancing to a decidedly different tune! Some of the organs have been purpose built to continue the tradition, and their creators will be on hand to explain their handiwork. The musical theme continues over in the museum […]
