The original pumping station was built in 1856 and subsequently extended several times.
It now houses an abundance of exhibits telling the story of the supply of water, including a two-storey high triple expansion steam pumping engine and an 1851 Harvey's of Hayle beam engine pump. Little known hot-air engines also feature and there should be a steam road roller in attendance.
Admission on this day is free of charge and is one of their "In Steam" days.
