About

Abbey Pumping Station Museum

Step through the doors beneath the 150 foot chimney and you will discover how Leicester’s Victorians tackled some of the big issues of the day. The solution was four mighty and magnificent beam engines, now restored to working condition. The Museum also charts the early days of motorised transport with a rare collection of vintage vehicles including busses, fire engines, a chip van, a hansom cab and its own narrow gauge steam railway.
