The pumping station

A visit to a open day at the old pumping station, in Shrewsbury’s Coleham district. The old pumping engines have been lovingly restored – so have their boilers – and are steam-operated at fairly regular intervals. Outside the building, there’s more of interest, including steam-powered garden railway trains, a 7¼” miniature railway and a 2′-gauge line. Great fun!
