HODs -Draining the Land by Steam and Diesel Power
17 September 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Part of the Lincolnshire HODs Festival 2022
Come and visit Dogdyke Pumping Station, a great example and one of many that could be found in the Fens, keeping the land drained. The site is complete with its engine attendant’s cottage, which now houses a small museum. The steam powered beam engine, built by Bradley and Craven of Wakefield in 1856, will be at work, the last example still operating a scoop-wheel pump by steam in the UK. Also at work will be the 1940 Ruston and Hornsby 7XHR oil engine and Gwynnes centrifugal pump, both built in Lincoln.
