Tees Cottage Pumping Station and its collection

Tees Cottage Pumping Station

From 1849, Tees Cottage Pumping Station revolutionized water supply in Darlington and Teeside by supplying cleaner, piped water to inhabitants who had previously relied on wells and rainwater tubs. On Open Days visitors can experience the 1902 Lancashire Boilers, 1904 steam Beam Engine and 1914 Gas engine, all operated and explained by volunteers. There is also a working Blacksmith's Shop and a Miniature Railway.
