Markfield Beam Engine Steaming Days
The Markfield Beam Engine and Museum is located in Markfield Park and the site consists of the remains of the Tottenham sewage treatment works and pumping station. 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.
Now home to the remains of the concrete walls of the original settlement tanks and filter beds and the original pump houses, one of which contains the Beam Pumping Engine.
The beam itself stands seventeen feet above floor level and is almost twenty-one feet in length and this is your opportunity to see the rare and unique engine in action!
