  • 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!
  • 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.
  • You should stop for a visit if you are around... It's a interesting and nice place with a great history, almost like a museum. The guide was very kind and helpful too. The people who keep this place alive and clean are volunteers.
  • On steam days in particular, this place is amazing, the architecture is stunning, and to see the pumps working is fascinating Beautiful surrounding, a truly beautiful place 😊
  • Very Well maintained Victorian steam engine in stunning surroundings, Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.
