  • A large and varied amount of small and large stationary engines that once drove industry. Very interesting with a wealth to be had when talking to the owners.
  • This place is an absolute gold mine of classic working engines from our past that all helped our early pumping stations and local early electric lighting systems grow into what we have today. There were 6 running engines today and there is a 3 Megawatt gas turbine generator that is just fantastic to see. I look forward to going back to there annual start up day where they will have most of what most be more than 30 diesel, gas, paraffin engines and there new 3 cylinder steam engine running. Cannot wait.
  • Great place and it deserves all the praise I'd heard about it. Took the family down, my wife who has no real interest in engines found it fascinating and we could of left the kids in the radio room for hours
  • Excellent and very interesting. The exhibits are varied and carefully restored to working order. A must visit place for anyone interested in engines or our industrial heritage
  • A fantastic slice of years gone by! An important museum preserving what made Britain the powerhouse it once was!
