Westonzoyland Pumping Station Museum Steam Up
Heritage Open Day: Come and see the 'award winning' 1861 Easton Amos land drainage machine in action and take a train ride on our 2' narrow gauge railway. The use of steam power on the Somerset Levels for land drainage began at Westonzoyland in 1830, when the first of eight pumping stations was built on the banks of the River Parrett. Discover how steam was used to power the 'award winning' 1861 Easton Amos land drainage machine and see a unique and varied collection of engines, winches, turbines and pumps in action from steam, raised by our 1938 Marshall Portable Boiler. We have one of the largest collections of working steam engines and pumps in England.
