Claymills Victorian Pumping Station and its collection

Claymills Victorian Pumping Station

Claymills Victorian Pumping Station is a unique museum in Burton upon Trent. The museum is an integrated industrial site dating from 1885 , designed specifically to pump brewery effluent to a farm some four miles away. Burton upon Trent was (and still is) a major brewing centre becasue of the quality of the ground water - in 1850 there were 30+ breweries and the largest, Bass, was bottling over 1 million bottles per year. IPA - India Pale Ale - was brewed in Burton and sent to ... India! The museum has been fully restored and offers both steaming and non-steaming visits.
