A walk by the lake

 

Papplewick pumping station - painting on canvas.

  'A walk by the lake' is a view of the Superintendents House across the cooling pond. This wonderful Victorian building is just one of the gems at Papplewick pumping station. Enthusiasts sail model boats & yachts on the cooling pond most Sundays. I live less than 10 minutes away from Britain's finest Victorian Water Works and spend many a happy afternoon there. Papplewick Pumping Station is the only one in the East Midlands which has been preserved as a complete pumping station in full working order. It has been restored from 1975 onwards and was opened formally on 8 June 2005 by The Duke of Gloucester. You really must make time for a visit especially on a Steaming weekend when you can see the working blacksmith in the forge and a local wood turner practising his art. In the main building there are two massive beam pumping engines, thought to be the last built by the famous firm of James Watt & Co. of Soho Works, Birmingham and London These engines are working under steam on Steaming Days. There are tours to the underground resevoirs by bus, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds. There are also events days. The First World War Weekends and 1940’s Weekends are very popular and well attended. ABOUT ARTWORK This painting is a photographic representation of a scene made from stencils.
