British Engineerium

A beautifully restored working Victorian pumping station and museum of mechanical antiquities.

The Trustees of the British Engineerium are delighted to announce that the future of the museum has been secured, thanks to the generous intervention of a private sponsor. The recently advertised sale of exhibits was cancelled at the eleventh hour and a period of intense planning has already begun. The museum will be closed until further notice, but be assured it will reopen.
