Dogdyke Pumping Station will be open to the public on Sunday August 7, from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

Both the pumping engines will be at work, with the unique 1856 Bradley and Craven beam engine being in steam and the Lincoln built Ruston and Hornsby diesel of 1940 also in operation.

Set in lovely grounds by the River Witham, it has interest for all the family and admission is free.

This weekend, Norman Burkett from Stow will also be showing some of his collection of farm tools and bygones.

The cottage refreshment room will be serving home made cakes, made with flour from Maud Foster windmill.
