Claymills Victorian Pumping Station, The Blacksmith's Shop
The blacksmiths forge had been completely stripped after the pumping station closed in 1971; the wooden floor had rotted away and the roof had collapsed in places. All of the machinery from the workshop and forge had been to another museum. This was returned after the Claymills Pumping Engines Trust began restoration of the site in 1993. The brick forge was rebuilt in 2005.

Claymills Pumping Station is a former steam-powered, sewage pumping station on the north side of Burton upon Trent, now restored as a museum and visitor attraction. It was built between 1884 and 1886 and used to pump sewage caused by the brewing industry in Burton-upon-Trent to the sewage farm at Egginton. It is designated as a Grade II* listed building (Historic England List entry Number: 1038427 LinkExternal link ); one of only three pumping stations of this size and completeness to survive in England.
