Learning Provision at Papplewick Pumping Station

This beautiful place was designed to pump millions of gallons of clean fresh water every day to the rapidly increasing population of industrial Nottingham. It is thanks to the endeavours of The Papplewick Pumping Station Trust, a Registered Charity dedicated to the preservation of the Pumping Station, together with the dedication of many volunteer members of the Papplewick Association that you can still experience the most spectacular, preserved water Pumping Station in the British Isles.

Papplewick Pumping Station was restored over the period 2003 – 2005 through the generous funding of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Biffaward, with further support from English Heritage, Severn Trent Water and the Greater Nottingham Partnership.

Following this extensive restoration, Papplewick Pumping Station once again stands proud as a spectacular example of Victorian craftsmanship and we are keen to engender understanding, enthusiasm and respect for our unique site with the widest possible community.

Our aim is to provide a learning resource for schools, higher and further education colleges, Universities, special interest groups and community groups whilst also providing for the needs and interests of our volunteers and staff.
