ST6416 : Sherborne Steam and Water Wheel Centre

taken 6 years ago, near to Sherborne, Dorset, Great Britain

Sherborne Steam and Water Wheel Centre
Sherborne Steam and Water Wheel Centre
This building is the original Sherborne water works of 1869 with its large breast shot water wheel that drove reciprocating pumps. The wheel is 26' diameter and had to be totally rebuilt in 2007/8. The original axle, bearings and ring gear were reused. The wheel is seen to the left of the sign.

The steam part of the title was added in 2012 when a steam engine was commissioned on the site in a new purpose built building.
