Crofton beam engines will be steaming up again over next weekend – Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 June.
Their staff and volunteers have been working flat out to bring the station back to life again and visitors will be welcome to see the 1812 Boulton and Watt Beam Engine working again for the first time in two years. Crofton invites everyone to step back in time to when Steam was King.
As with just about every other attraction COVID has had an effect, and in the case of Crofton it’s been to restrict the number of visitors at any one time and stagger when people can actually visit. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased from Art Fund by clicking this link and then hitting the ‘Buy Tickets’ button.
Full details of ticket prices, and concessions for Kennet & Avon Canal Trust members/National Art Pass holders, can be found via the Crofton Beam Engines website booking page. Guide price ‘standard’ adult £10.75 (£12 with Gift Aid). Accompanied children under 16 are free, but still need to have a booked timed ticket with their group in order to keep visitor numbers in line with current Government guidelines.
