Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Prickwillow Engine Museum 2021

The museum houses many very large and rare diesel engines, all in working order. The collection includes six large diesel pumping engines, all British-built and of early to mid 20th century design, rescued from Fenland pumping stations. The Mirrlees engine is the original engine installed at Prickwillow pumping station in 1924. It also tells the story of the Fens, complemented by a static display of drainage and farming tools and equipment.
