The pumping station was designed in the 1880s to pump gallons of clean, fresh water every day to the rapidly growing population of Industrial Britain.
Thanks to the work of The Papplewick Station Trust and the enthusiasm of the volunteer members of the Papplewick Association, you can still experience the most spectacular, preserved water Pumping Station in Britain.
The site has recently undergone extensive restoration and once again stands proud as a spectacular example of Victorian craftsmanship and boasts a range of original features. It is now protected as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and regularly holds steaming events throughout the year, and is a popular venue for wedding ceremonies and educational visits.
