  • Very informative guided tour of the engine house, will be of interest to anyone who wants to know how early steam engines work. Nice cafe with a good range of light lunches and cakes. Good place to take a look at the Kennet and Avon canal
  • Local attraction with proper heavy engineering. In steam days have bar, live music etc
  • A great day out. All the volunteers are so helpful,adult and child alike can't fail to have a great time.
  • fascinating place on the chap who guided knows his beam engines!
