The old water pumping station is located at Langford just north of Heybridge, Maldon, Essex. It used to pump water for the Southend area some 25 miles away. There are a number of interesting machines but the centre piece is one of the three original steam driven Lilleshall Engines used from 1939 to pump water.
This is a great family visit, the museum is extremely well laid out with loads of working machines & I will return soon on one of their engine running days.
