Markfield Beam Engine Museum tells a fascinating public health story.
Featuring a Victorian steam engine, this family-friendly museum is a great way to inspire young engineers! We have free kids activities and guided tours.
Our beautiful 1888 beam engine was part of a sewage treatment works that saved thousands of lives in Tottenham.
