WELCOME TO

One of the largest collections of stationary steam engines and pumps in the UK

Westonzoyland is a small village on the Somerset Levels, a few miles from Bridgwater. It is the home of Somerset's earliest steam-powered pumping station (built 1831), once a hard-working guardian of the flatlands, now a museum displaying the largest collection of stationary steam engines and pumps in the South of England.

Pride of place goes to the station's pumping engine, the Easton and Amos. It is still in the main engine house, built in 1861 to replace an earlier engine that had been carrying out the pumping work since 1831. Other exhibits include a Wills engine, Lancashire boiler, the original forge and a Lister diesel generating plant, to name just a few.

A large number of restored engines can be seen in action on Steaming Days. Dates for these are posted on the Events page. Volunteers work during the morning to get the boiler operating and generating enough steam power to run the exhibits, including the large Easton and Amos. 

Please look around the website for more information about the engines, the Trust's work and, of course, how to find us. The museum is a registered charity, run by unpaid volunteers, and relies solely on the income from visitors, subscriptions and donations. There is no subsidy from government.
