Kempton Steam Museum
Kempton Steam Museum is home to the world's largest working triple-expansion steam pumping engine.
There are two of these huge, Worthington-Simpson Triple engines. They are 62 feet high, and weigh 1,000 tons. Each engine is the size of a block of flats. The engines are housed in a magnificent Art Deco building.
One of the engines has been restored to full working order and, on certain days, you can actually see it working. The other engine is maintained as a static display, but is equally as interesting and impressive.
Their friendly and helpful staff are on-hand to make your visit just that much more interesting. They'll guide you around the museum, answer questions, provide refreshments and even pose for the occasional photograph.
