Magic enthusiasm!
Okt 2019
Searching Dorset attractions we found this was open and 'in steam' when touring the area.
A great bit of local history lovingly restored and maintained by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable
group.

Oozing with enthusiasm
Okt 2019
Lovely to see so many volunteers keen to show off their preserved water wheel and steam engine. Loads of information, but a bit confused as to why the water cane from 2 leats, and not the big castle lake nearby. I had a nice time wandering the site.

Great way to while away some time!

We visited on one of the open days with the pumping engine in steam. I hadn’t realised the centre even existed until looking for somewhere to make up the “cultural” element of a friend’s birthday celebration. The centre hides its light under a bushel to a degree but is a great off-beat attraction manned by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers. Well worth a visit.

Great day out for steam nuts.

Wonderful open day run by volunteers. (Check their website for open days).The water wheel and steam engines are the main attraction but there were also vintage bicycles, motor bikes and a Hillman Minx car when we attended. They have a cafe with home made cakes.!
Admission price is by voluntary donation.
You could combine this with a visit to the nearby Old Sherborne Castle.

A well-presented and unique piece of history
Sep 2017 • Pasangan
It is well worth keeping an eye out for the Centre's Open Days - they are not to be missed. We visited the Centre on one in September 2017. The waterwheel and its companion steam engine are most impressive. As one might expect, they are exceptionally well maintained, and are best seen on an Open Day when the steam pumping engine is in steam. Two features make this centre stand out. First, the effort to explain the context of the pumping station - why it was built and how it works - is first rate with good use of mapping, old documents and working models. Second, and arguably more important, the volunteers who do so much to keep things going bring things to life admirably. Their welcome is warm and their combination of enthusiasm and knowledge is in welcome contrast to the synthetic presentation at many attractions. It wins over even the least avid steam fans, and ensures an afternoon or morning well spent. The site is not large and it is sometimes necessary to kerbside park on the road outside. There is a small volunteer manned tea room available. Strongly recommended.

Open day in steam

We visited on an open day when the waterwheel engine was in steam and many other old engines had been brought. Steam engines, gas engines, fascinating.

Great working models, really help to understand the mechanics

I went the centre on an open day & was really impressed by the huge working original equipment, working models & mini steam engines. Although not a large place I managed to spend a good couple of hours there.

Nostalgic visit
Jul 2016 • Pasangan
We visited on one of the special open days when they dressed up in Victorian clothes and had lots of interesting displays of vintage bicycles, steam equipment as well as the water wheel running. There is an excellent history of the site and of Sherborne which we learnt a lot from. We also had delicious tea and cakes made by volunteers.

This was a lifesaver.

I'm not a steam nut, but the sight of this powerful engine slogging away with a full head of steam is certainly impressive, but more fascinating to me is the extraordinary inventiveness of a Victorian engineer in designing a pump to lift clean water from a deep bore hole below the town to a reservoir 230 feet above the town. The visitor centre describes the appalling conditions existing in Sherborne in the mid C19th, which had an annual mortality rate of 67 per 1,000 of the population, caused by disease caught from drinking severely polluted water from the town's shallow wells. A rather different picture from Sherborne today! Enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers are on hand each monthly open day to answer the questions of the curious.. Well worth a visit and a good five pounds worth.
