Abbey Pumping Station
Abbey Pumping Station is Leicester’s museum of science and technology, displaying the city’s industrial, technological and scientific heritage.
Abbey Pumping Station was a hugely significant and important building to Leicester during Victorian times. It improved health and sanitation within the city, pumping sewage away from the city centre to treatment works. Its four massive beam engines, which dominate the decorative engine house, have been restored to their working condition.
Abbey Pumping Station has displays on industry, transport, health, and hygiene.
