  • Fantastic free exhibition! Spent a lovely afternoon here learning about the history of steam powered water pumps and how they contributed to the development of the area. Knowledgeable team and a nice little cafe where you can sit watching the engines in motion. The nuclear bunker was also interesting to have a nose around. Good for a free (donations welcome) half day activity, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat!
