Housed in its original Grade II listed Engine House
The Markfield Beam Engine and Museum
The Markfield Beam Engine and Museum is housed in its original Grade II listed Engine House in the former sewage treatment works for Tottenham which now forms part of Markfield Park. The works were operational for over one hundred years until 1964, when all the incoming sewers were diverted to the extended East Middlesex Works at Deephams.
The principal exhibit is the Wood Bros. Victorian Beam Steam Pumping Engine of 1888. This remarkable engine has been restored and can be seen in action operating under steam power on designated days.
The Engine House has also been recently renovated, so come along and admire this incredible machine which played such a vital role in the history of the area. Why not stop for a drink at the on-site cafe too?
Whilst you're in the area why not visit the WaterWorks Nature Reserve and Middlesex Filter Beds or delve into the history and wildlife of East India Dock Basin.
