What is Tees Cottage Pumping Station?
|From 1849 Tees Cottage Pumping Station revolutionized water supply in Darlington and Teesside by offering cleaner, piped water to inhabitants who had previously relied on wells and rainwater tubs. The engines at Tees Cottage pumped water from the River Tees, which was then filtered and supplied to the water company's customers.|
|Visit Tees Cottage to see the 1902 Lancashire Boilers, 1904 steam powered Beam Engine and 1914 Gas powered engine, all in operation and still pumping water from the River Tees (although no longer supplying the town's water!) We also have a Blacksmith's Shop, where demonstrations are usually given, and a Miniature Railway, with rides provided by Cleveland Association of Model Engineers for a small additional charge. Refreshments are available in our Tea Room or you can bring a picnic to enjoy in our grounds.
