Twyford Waterworks -overview
Twyford Waterworks -overview
This complex of building includes the boiler house with three water tube boilers, the square brick chimney with quite a pronounced batter, the engine house that still contains one of two steam pumping engines (the other scrapped in the 1950s), the 1935 diesel engine house and the working station with wells and water treatment plant. Southern Water has just had major work done on the roofs and the good thing is that you can hardly tell (they look the part but keep the weather out - win:win!). A major lottery project is now under way and is due for completion in 2015 with a return to steam operation on open days.

We took one of our colleagues who had not been before and wasn't expecting too much with the plant out of steam - he was really impressed with the breadth and depth of the site and had a great time.
