Putting Our Collection Into Context
In this section we will build a collection of Information Sheets of a less technical nature, which explain more about the back story of selected items – what they were, how and where they were used, and any significance attached to this.
In the first of these we tell the back story of some of the static exhibits in the grounds of the Waterworks Museum. More will follow in due course.
- Tangye Single Cylinder Steam Engine – used at the Hereford Sanitary Laundry
- Glenfield & Kennedy ‘Peebles’ type Sand Washer – used at Broomy Hill water treatment works
- Blake Compound RAM pump – used to supply water at Tedstone Court, near Bromyard
- Lucy Box – the distribution box that brought electric power to the Lower Pumping Station in 1914
