Museum of Power
Hatfield Road Langford Maldon CM9 6QA Telephone 01621 843183
The Museum of Power is located in a former Southend Waterworks pumping station that was built in the 1920's to house the three huge steam pumps that were required to send treated watervia a pipe to Southend-on-Sea.
THE LILLISHALL ENGINE "Marshall"
The steam pumps were shut down in 1963 after a new electric powered pumping station was built short distance away.
Two of the pumps were dismantled and sold but the water company had the foresight to keep the newer of the engines in place. That engine is the Lilleshall triple expansion steam pump named 'Marshall' which has now been restored to run under steam power again after 50 years.
Displays within the Museum of Power feature:
- Steam, electric & nuclear power
- Domestic power
- Belt driven workshop containing a wide selection of machine tools
- Various examples of diesel engines
- The story of the Langford water works
