Museum of Power

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.
