Fascinating Victorian engineering, well worth a visit
A fascinating piece of Victorian engineering - on a very large scale. The knowledgeable volunteers were always ready to talk about the machinery - we learned much interesting information about the processing of sewage in Victorian times, and about the workings of the steam engines and pumps.
We were able to see inside the workshops where more volunteers were working, in many cases using tools which are themselves part of the heritage of the site, to do the repairs and maintenance required in such a place.
We were very glad we visited, even on a wet day we were able to see everything, and plan to return on a steaming day to see the engines working.

Informative visit about pumping waste in Victorian time
2021年9月 • 夫妻情侣
Visited during heritage week, very easy to find literally 2 minutes of A38 Burton turning.
We arrived and it was quiet, we were taken straight on the tour by a very knowledgeable volunteer. Shown all the various levels of the pumping house and all the workshops.
Be great to go back when the steam is running.

Worth a visit, especially if it’s a steam day
2021年9月 • 夫妻情侣
Stayed up in the Peak District for a week with my partner and saw this pumping station on a list of places to visit. Unfortunately it was an hour away from our cottage but on the way home. We decided to pop in on the way back down to Somerset and we’re glad we did. It was a Saturday afternoon when we arrived and there were a few people stood around. We were a little confused at first because it didn’t look like it was open but we were soon told to hang tight as someone would be over to show us around. We had a friendly gentlemen who gave us a very informative tour of the site! I’d love to go back on a steam day and see everything up and running but it was fascinating nonetheless. I’d suggest going on a proper open day if you can as it’ll be a bit more interactive but if you fancy a quieter day out then go on a static day like we did. The volunteers have done a fantastic job of restoring the site so far and we wish them all the best with all the new improvements they have planned! If we lived closer you’d have another pair of hands. Thank you for a pleasant visit :)

Fascinating location
Visited Clay Mills as part of a photography group shoot - what a fascinating place - outstanding work being done to maintain and develop this place of historic significance. The volunteers have done a great job with the place and did an excellent job on the day - made us feel very welcome and couldn't do more to be helpful.

What a joy!
I just dropped in without planning a visit. A nice (and very knowledgeable) man took me round for well over and hour and answered my interminable questions. What a joy! The scale of the achievement of the original engineers is amazing. The perseverance of the volunteers who have restored so much of the site is to be wondered at.
Thoroughly enjoyable. I must go back when the engines are in steam.

Fabulous visit

Visiting the area and googled what to see when nearby. Claymills came up in our search. My husband emailed via the website but as we wished to visit the same day he backed this up with a telephone call. We were told we could come along today at 1pm.
We arrived around 12.15 and sat in our car waiting for 1pm. A guy came to meet us and said someone would be along shortly.
Within minutes another guy, it wasn’t until later we asked his name again, Steve along and told us about the safety on site. He said we could start our tour straight away. We signed the track and trace form and our tour started.
Steve was the perfect guide to this amazing site. Having been a volunteer for 26 years, Steve knew everything about the site and it’s history. My husband is an engineer and particularly interested in Victorian engineering. Steve was knowledgeable and approachable when we asked questions.
A visit to this pumping station is essential if visiting the area and despite the steam engines not actually working (we knew this before our visit so in no way did it put us off) we had an amazing couple of hours.
At the time of our visit it was free to enter but we willingly left a donation and would encourage all visitors to do the same for this amazing place to continue to renovate the engines within the site.
If we are ever back in the area we will definitely re-visit this site. Special thank you to our guide today Steve, you were fabulous and so enthusiastic with an obvious passion for the place.

Hidden away
Visited after seeing the venue on a heritage website. Really interesting find. The tour was led by a very knowledgable person, but all the volunteers clearly had a passion for this place. The engines weren’t in steam on the day of our trip so will return again when they are

If you like steam
2019年8月 • 夫妻情侣
This is an amazing place there are no frills and no ridiculous health and safety enforcement. Best to go when they are steaming the massive beam engine is so impressive. There are guys working machines driven by steam in an engineering shop there is even a blacksmith. A nice little cafe it’s like stepping backwards in time. The volunteers are friendly and helpful and will do their best to answer any questions. Don’t expect any modernity this is the real deal.
