The Markfield Beam Engine & Museum – European Steam weekend

The Markfield beam Engine and Museum is opening their European Steam Weekend with an open public talk and demonstration of an original steam-powered Victorian sewage works pumping engine.

The Museum features a Grade 2 listed engine hall housing a restored, working Wood bros. steam-powered beam engine dating from 1888 – a masterpiece of Victorian engineering and an example of industrial heritage of social and engineering importance.

The engine is in its Grade II engine house, and participants of the tour will be able to see the remains of the original sewage works (some of which dates to the 1850s and is one of the earliest examples of a local community sewage treatment facility).

The Markfield beam Engine and Museum is a staple of industrial heritage on the outskirts of London it is opening especially for this weekend in celebration of 2018’s European Year of Cultural Heritage and will have a further celebration in September for London’s Open House event.

Make a day of it!

The Café adjacent to museum is open from 9am to 6pm every day serving coffees, teas, juices, light snacks and delicious cakes. The café is now also licensed, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer.
