Papplewick Pumping Station - an outstanding example of Ornate Victorian Architecture, opened in 1884,
with two unique Watts Rotative Beam Engines.

This is Britain's finest Victorian Water Works and the only one in the  Midlands to be preserved as a complete working water pumping station.  Papplewick Pumping Station was built between 1882 - 1884 to supplement  the water supply for the growing city of Nottingham.
In the main building there are two massive beam pumping engines, thought to  be the last built by the famous firm of James Watt & Co. of Soho Works, Birmingham and London.
