Markfield Beam Engine Museum

A little known industrial museum to the beam engine.

Location: Markfield Road, Tottenham, London

Description: The Markfield Beam Engine and Museum is an original Grade II listed Engine House in the former sewage treatment works for Tottenham which now forms a pleasant part of Markfield Park.

The principal exhibit is the Wood Brothers Beam Steam Pumping Engine of 1886. The Engine has been restored and can be seen operating under steam power on designated days. It was commissioned on the 12th July 1888. It saw continuous duty from that time to around 1905, when it was relegated to standby duty for storm water pumping.

The Engine House also has been renovated and there is now a Cafe on site.
