Head for the imposing chimney stack of the pumping station rising out of the marshy Somerset Levels and come and warm up in front of our ‘new’ 1924 Robey Portable Boiler.  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 […]
