We are pleased to announce that we will be open on Saturday 16th September from 12:30 to 4:30pm as part of the many events Heritage Lincolnshire have organised.
Our friends at Timberland are also open on Saturday 16th and you can visit them from 1:30 to 4:30pm
Come and see our Bradley and Craven 1856 steam engine, oil engines, classic cars, and bygones, miltary display, a display of paintings by the Woodhall Art Group as well as a plant stall, bric-a-brac stall, refeshments and home made cakes.
Our unique 1856 steam pumping engine, that once kept the land around Tattershall dry, will be at work powering the 24 foot diameter wooden scoop wheel.
Also the Lincoln built 40hp Ruston and Hornsby, single cylinder oil engine and Gwynnes centrifugal pump, which replaced the steam engine in 1940 will be at work.
Visitors can also visit the nearby Timberland Pumping Station which will be open from 1.00 to 4.30pm.
Have an enjoyable day out for all the family.
Admission to the site is free.
Donations are welcome to help maintain the engines and site.
These engines are found east of Tattershall Bridge on the A153 Sleaford to Horncastle road, with an access road through Bridge Farm, LN4 4JG. There is a car park, bric-a-brac and plant stall and a museum. Refreshments are available in the pump attendant’s cottage.
