The Trust is proud and honoured to announce that it has received
an Engineering Heritage award from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
The citation reads:
"Awarded to the Claymills Pumping Engines Trust
for their restoration of Britain's most complete
example of a Victorian sewage pumping station.
From 1885 to 1971 this site dealt with the effluent
from Burton upon Trent's brewing industry.
Among its many treasures is the oldest working
steam driven dynamo in the country."
After a tour of the pumping station, the award was unveiled by John Wood President of the Institution.
