Twyford Waterworks

An interesting day out for 5 WFTR cars, organised by Dave and Linda, to an historic Edwardian waterworks.

A mix of a tour round a Scheduled Ancient Monument (they are proud that they have the same protection as Stonehenge) coupled with a (modest) steam fair and classic car show.

At first, we thought we were the car show, but a few more turned up!

Steam engines medium sized…

Small…

And huge.

Jenny not too sure about this toolboard!

Private Frazer form Dad’s Army showed us around the historic parts of the waterworks, which mainly concerned the laborious (and now long discontinued) process of water softening.

This lady volunteer demonstrated a 2.5 lire 3 cylinder water-powered engine to haul trucks of chalk from the quarry below

This man had a more relaxing job chugging backwards and forwards all day

Disappointed to learn that the big pumping engine would not be demonstrated due to technical problems

Dave and Jenny- one has been to the barbecue!

Enjoyable day out.
