Cruquius Independent Steam Site Link Options

Description: Draining the Haarlemmermeer was an immense undertaking. For three years great clouds of smoke hung from the chimneys of the three steam pumping stations built for this gigantic task: Leeghwater, Lynden and Cruquius. Many years ago Cruquius was finally retired. The work was taken over by more modern pumps. The steam pumping station became an industrial monument, one of the first in the Netherlands. A fascinating story lies hidden in this imposing monument.
