IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT THE STEAMING OF THE ENGINES.


Unfortunately the site steam boiler has accumulated a number of (expensive) problems and so has been permanently taken out of service. Therefore, for an indefinite future, the museum will have no steam. Alternative means of achieving motion are being progressed.

For the time being:-

the museum will be open on:  

Wednesdays,

Bank Holiday Mondays,

First Sunday of the month.

10.00 am to 4.00 pm

Starting Easter Monday 18th April

Ending the end of October



Admission is FREE but donations in the box are appreciated to help with restoration and running costs.


A small number of engines will be in motion, by other means, during opening times


These include:-

Goddard & Massey Beam Engine (vacuum/exhauster)

Burton College Engine (electric drive

The ‘Reliant’ Paddle Tug Engine (electric drive)

 several Model Engines (compressed air)


The rest will be on static display only.
