Hatfield Road, Langford, Maldon, Essex, CM9 6QA
The museum collection illustrates the theme of power. There are engines powered by steam, diesel, petrol and gas. The Langford Pumping Station was built in the 1920s to supply water to Southend-on-Sea District, and is home to what is believed to be the last manufactured Lilleshall triple expansion steam engine, commissioned in 1931. Other attractions include a miniature steam railway and riverside nature trail. There will also be a book and craft fair for the weekend. The Steam Pump Tearoom offers a wide range of refreshments. Visit another industrial heritage site at Beeleigh Mill, a pleasant 15-20 minute walk from the Museum of Power via the stunning Beeleigh Falls and canal towpath. (See separate entry)
