Mill Meece Pumping Station
It is probably the last example of a 20th Century steam water pumping station in tact. Although belonging to the end of the steam era the engines are just as important to preserve as early beam engines. Beam engines abound, the Mill Meece horizontal tandem compound steam engines are the only ones of their type still capable of being steamed. Along with all the ancillary equipment of boilers, economiser, Weir pumps, steam winch and weigh bridge the station forms a complete example of an Edwardian water supply pumping station.
