Crofton winter work open days
Come and see behind the scenes at the Historic Crofton Pumping Station this winter, when our teams of dedicated volunteers cosset and maintain the two historic beam engines.
The Pumping Station will be open free of charge on the following days from 10:30 to 15:30.
• Saturday 1 November 2014
• Saturday 13 December 2014
• Saturday 7 February 2015
• Saturday 7 March 2015
This winter we are giving visitors a rare chance to see maintenance works in progress,
when we dismantle parts of the engines normally hidden from view.
It’s cold inside the pumping station during the winter as the boiler is not in steam and drained down but tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small charge.
Halloween at Gloucester Waterways Museum
Jeepers, creepers! Gloucester Waterways Museum is planning a halloween extravaganza with spine-tingling activities to keep the kids entertained this half-term.
The Museum’s education team have let their imaginations run wild to plan a spooky (but not too scary) Halloween trail around the museum.
Crafty children of all ages will enjoy making witches’ hats, frogs, bat mobiles and scary spiders in our craft room throughout half-term.
