What does the group do?

The members have a wide range of skills and interests, providing maintenance, restoration and conservation of the collections.

A special events diary is developed and delivered by LMTA each year and includes railway days, children's events, vintage festivals, steam toys and model railways. The association also provides a cafe for refreshments.

During selected special events, the LMTA enables the running of the massive Gimson beam engines and the narrow gauge railway.

All money raised by the LMTA from its events, donations from the public and sponsorship is used to support the work and collections of Abbey Pumping Station. If you would be interested in offering individual or corporate support, please email us at projects@abbeypumpingstation.org.
