  • My daughter arranged a garden party for her husband's birthday. It was a beautiful location. I would definitely like to visit again
  • This is a fascinating place with much history. It gives an insight into the development of clean water supplies and the ingenuity of various artisans. It is now a tranquil spot and well worth a visit. There is also a miniature railway there!
  • Great place to be. Educational and great scenery. Usually go during the steampunk events so we love it there anyway
  • We love this place. Its worth coming on a bank holiday, as that is when the victorian steam pumping station is actually working 'in steam'. The underground reservoir just up the hill is well worth paying the extra £2 for.
  • A lovely day out here with a super friendly knowledgeable volunteer guide.
