Go with the flow

The restored Boughton Pumping Station in Brake Lane, Boughton, Newark, Nottinghamshire, opens on March 28 with a family gala day. Although much of the original steam-driven machinery has disappeared, the Grade II listed facade is intact and houses an interactive exhibition about the history of the station.

In the basement will be Energetica: the future of power, an exhibition illustrating what the alternatives are for saving energy around the world from harnessing the power of the sun, wind and rain to the use of crop oils and landfill gases. The Pumping Station's own heat and energy needs will be supplied by a wood-chip biomass combined heat and power system.

On April 5, the Station is hosting Discovering Nottinghamshire, the tourism industry's major exhibition, 10.30am-4pm. Entry is free. Gala day details from Lee Cartwright, tel: 01623 862366.
