Leawood Pump House steaming weekend

Leawood Pump House will be back in operation Easter Sunday and Monday after its prolonged closure over winter 2018 – 2019. We have had extensive repairs to the roof of the listed structure of the engine house. Rotted timbers have been replaced. The volunteers have also had to strip the boilers down to bare metal so they can have a full inspection and tests- which thankfully, they have passed!

We are close to the bottom of the High Peak Trail (see map below), and as ever, the volunteers would like to share their enthusiasm for this magnificent, massive, one hundred and seventy year old historic machine with our visitors – who will be welcome throughout the day.
