Claymills Victorian Pumping Station
This is a place where in a family fun way you can really get to grips with the technology that drove the Industrial Revolution.
There are four huge pumping beam engines, two of which currently work, a large steam driven workshop where you can see engineers and a blacksmith in action. The children can experience for themselves just what it is like to start a steam engine and for the younger ones there is dressing up and lots of Lego. There is also often the chance to ride on a model traction engine.
When you get thirsty and hungry the Stoker's Rest is the place for you. There is also a second hand bookshop and lots of bric a brac.
