Entry normally FREE


The Society currently operates a policy of FREE admission, parking and guided tours for its advertised operating days. This is in the belief that our visitors with a passion for water engineering heritage and of course there are unavoidable running costs, such as fuel and insurance, that have to be met. So donations to assist in keeping the Experience alive are always gratefully received. Group tours are also available by special arrangement and may be subject to a charge to meet running expenses.
May we also make a plea that as the site is on an operational waterworks it is out of bounds to dogs and other pets save for Assistance dogs.
