Tees Cottage Pumping Station’s next open weekend is Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2019 from 11am-5pm each day.
Explore the Tees Cottage site on Coniscliffe Road, Darlington DL3 8TF, including Lancashire Boilers from 1902, a 1904 steam-powered Beam Engine and a 1914 gas engine, all in operation and still pumping water from the River Tees (although no longer supplying the town’s water!).
There is also a Blacksmith’s Shop, where demonstrations are usually given, and a Miniature Railway, with rides provided by Cleveland Association of Model Engineers for a small additional charge.
Refreshments available in the Tea Room or bring a picnic to enjoy in their grounds.
