Autumn Waterworks Museum

28th October

Established in 1974, the museum is an independent working museum concerned primarily, but not exclusively, with the story of the supply of water for public consumption from earliest habitation to the close of the 20th century. Home to a permanent exhibition about Hereford in WW2 the museum is generally seen as a time capsule of social history for Herefordshire, the Marches and parts of Wales. With one of the widest range of working steam, oil, gas and hot air engines engines in the UK, many of which can be seen doing what they were intended for – pumping water, this will be a fantastic day out.  There are trails for the children and interactive devices across the Museum which visitors are encouraged to touch and use.
