Melingriffith Water Pump 2024

A ‘water lift engine’, the only one left in the world. Installed in the 1790s to a design by Jessop & Rennie, it lifted water from the tailrace exiting the Melingriffith Ironworks, into the Glamorganshire canal. The canal was instrumental in bringing coal to Cardiff docks for export around the world.
