The eastern section of the valve house has been recently restored and now houses a selection of small engines, some of which were used for pumping and others for driving machinery.

These engines were saved from destruction from a variety of locations and were mostly in a sad state of repair. Over a period of years the engines have been completely stripped down and restored and we run them on compressed air on steaming days.

We also have small a display of equipment which was used by Thames Water to record tide movements and check for water leaks, a large wooden pattern for casting flywheel sections and some old belt driven lathes.
