Papplewick Pumping Station is regarded as the finest surviving fresh water pumping station in England. Now a Scheduled Ancient Monument, it is unique in retaining all of its original features including its six hand fired Lancashire boilers and two James Watt beam engines. Also on site is the only surviving steam powered Robey winding engine, a miniature passenger railway, a café, play park and Byzantine style underground reservoir.
The station is famous for its elaborate architecture and ornate decoration which captures the imagination of both young and old, making the station very popular with families.
