A visit to Papplewick Pumping Station

I know I’ve been before a couple of times, but Papplewick always fascinates me. It’s the Victorian thing for making engineering beautiful. I know cost wasn’t as much of an issue back then, but I do wish modern engineers would pay half the attention to detail that the creators of this amazing machine did.

This amazing pump can move a phenomenal amount of water and indeed for quite a few years supplied a large portion of North Nottinghamshire!
