Engine Museum of Land Drainage, Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire

Engine Museum of Land Drainage, Pinchbeck, Lincolnshire

Built in the early 19th century, the Pinchbeck Engine was a drainage engine to drain Pinchbeck Marsh, north of Spalding.

When modern progress declared the engine obsolete during the early 1950s it stood forgotten for several decades until being opened to the public as a museum in 1979.

The museum complex includes a blacksmith's shop, still in its original condition; the engine is a static exhibit, which can be rotated for demonstration purposes. The museum also retains a history of the drainage of the fens.

The buildings are now Grade II listed. There is a car park, toilet facilities and a picnic area.
