Founded in 1977, Westonzoyland Pumping Station Museum was initially started to restore, run and maintain the original Easton Amos Land Drainage Machine. However as time went on it was clear that lots of steam powered pumps and engines were being disposed of and so the museum expanded and has since become one of the largest collections of stationary steam engines and pumps in the UK. Most of the engines have either been made locally or have been used locally. On steaming days we operate on a timetabled basis all of our collection. Should you wish to see a particular engine run please ask a volunteer who will be able to help. We also have some examples of diesel powered engines that can be run on non-steam days and these include a large 31 litre Crossley that once supplied drinking water to Bridgwater.
If you would like to learn more about our collection, our guide book is for sale in our online shop and at the museum and gives a description of each engine and its use in industry.
