Twyford Waterworks Museum Link Options
Old 10-27-2012 02:58:48 PM
Description: Twyford Waterworks is an Edwardian pumping station containing a unique selection of buildings and machinery in the heart of Hampshire. The site was given the status of a Scheduled Ancient Monument in 1973.
In 1985 the Twyford Waterworks Trust was incorporated as a charity to run it.
It is unique in having a bank of three Babcock and Wilcocks WIF water tube boilers and the Trust intends to restore one to steam. It will provide the steam source for the 1914 Hathorn Davey triple expansion engine in the Engine House.
The 1935 Diesel House is home for the two Ruston diesel pumping engines, with a third housed in probably the oldest "temporary" listed wooden building in existence.
Along with the chalk quarry, lime kilns and softening & flitration plant and industrial 2ft gauge railway the site caters for a wide variety of interests.
Open from 11.00am to 4.00pm on the first Sunday of the month throughout the summer (May to October) the Museum also hosts various special theme days.
