Victoria Atkins, the Member of Parliament for Louth and Horncastle, visited the Dogdyke Steam Pumping Station Open Day at Tattershall Bridge on Sunday 3 September. She was shown the unique Bradley and Craven beam engine of 1856 which drives the wooden scoop wheel pump and the Lincoln built Ruston and Hornsby Oil Engine of 1940.

She also enjoyed meeting members of the Lincolnshire Oil Engine Club who had a selection of their engines in operation.

Victoria Atkins wrote: ‘This is a local heritage treasure. Thank you to all the volunteers who work hard to keep this all thriving.’
