Description

One not to be missed – a mix of Victorian eccentricity, technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery!  Featuring performances by The Stormtrees and Boggarts Breakfast on Saturday and The Captain of the Lost Waves on Sunday, this is a steaming event not to miss!

Witness Dr Marconi and his weird magical trickery, the Soluna Burlesque Dance troupe and the Cog Detective’s master class in artefact painting workshops. Plus tea duelling, facial hair competitions and over 30 of the finest steampunk trade stalls.

The 1884 twin James Watt Beam Engines are in full steam this weekend, along with the Galloway Boiler, Robey Winding Engine, miniature working steam engines and passenger carrying railway, landscaped gardens and woodland play area, picnic area, café and gift shop.  

Regular trips to see the amazing 1879 underground reservoir with its Cathedral style ceilings throughout the day.  (Weather permitting and small charge payable)

Papplewick Pumping Station is located between Burntstump Hill and Longdale Lane, Ravenshead NG15 9AJ and is Britain’s finest and most ornate working Victorian water pumping station.
