Boys day out that my wife liked

You must go on a "steaming" day otherwise you will miss the energy that is all around. Many massive steam pumps that overawe and give a sense of the capabilities and "can do " attitudes of those amazing Victorian engineers. Some of these really BIG machines have less BHP than a small family car but they really shout about how good they are!! The people who keep all this equipment in working order, whilst paying homage to the past, are preserving it for the future. Information is well presented and engages one in the history of the area through the ages.
