Papplewick Pumping Station is the finest working Victorian water pumping station in Britain. The site has recently undergone extensive restoration and once again stands proud as a spectacular example of Victorian craftsmanship. It boasts a range of original features including an ornate Engine House, ornamental cooling pond and a Boiler House complete with six Lancashire Boilers, all set amidst formal landscaped grounds.
The Engine House is home to the original twin beam engines, built by James Watt and Co in 1884, and is of special interest for its outstanding combination of Victorian engineering and artistic design. Visitors are taken aback by the sheer splendour of the stained glass windows, elaborately decorated columns and polished mahogany and brass work.
Designed as a statement of Victorian flare and pride, it is hard to believe today that the site was never intended to be seen by the general public.
