Dogdyke Pumping Station is firing up the engines




Dogdyke Pumping Station is set to welcome visitors again this month.

After waiting for more than a year, volunteers will be pleased to welcome visitors once more to this attractive riverside site - and to show the engines at work.

On Sunday, July 4, the historic land drainage engines will be open to the public between 12.30pm and 4.30pm.

Visitors will be able to learn more about the steam engine, which dates from 1856, and is the only surviving example made by the Wakefield firm of Bradley and Craven.

In the adjacent engine house, you can enjoy the Lincoln built single cylinder diesel engine made by Ruston and Hornsby in 1940.

The site is wheelchair friendly. There is ample car parking and refreshment are available. Admission is free, however donations are welcome to help keep these engines preserved.

Dogdyke operates within the current Covid-19 guidelines and asks visitors to respect social distancing.
