“A blast from the past”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Well laid out and maintained museum of drainage artefacts from the past. Excellent information on he the Fens were drained.
Refreshment area could have had more selection as it is a bit basic

“If you like big static engines”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

It is most definetly the place to go. Well signposted, so easy to find. Obviously run by dedicated enthusiasts. Very well presented, lots of relevant information. All shiny and clean. Not intending to be sexist, but it may mostly appeal to men or supportive ladies !
