The interior of the Dock Road station, showing one of the two Crossley ‘N’ Type gas engines and Hayward Tyler pumps.
The engines at the Dock Road Edwardian Pumping Station in Northwich may not be unique: there are quite a few of these early 20th century machines in museums and private collections.
Whenever possible when the station is open to visitors, the wardens run one or both of the engines, pumping water to demonstrate the system.
