Somewhere i have yet to visit but hope to at some point, in the meantime i really enjoyed these virtual tours of the site which will be of interest to those of you further afield:

Beam Engine house: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=8qU6S1wAYm4

Beam Engine house basement: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=wYzEbL5eTgt

Boilerhouse: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=MPnztPbHWms

Gas Engine House: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=rDqYBjbL8Yv

I particularly like the fact the beam engine still retains it's original paint from the 1900's, you can tell it was designed by Thomas Hawksley due to the wonderful Gothic parallel motion links which were one of his trademarks on quite a few waterworks projects. Sadly many of these engines were scrapped so it is wonderful that this example which was probably one of the last waterworks beam engines ever made has been preserved.
Your nose is before your eyes, so trust it first!
