The Trust is embarking on an exciting new venture "Ratty Tails", with the launch of a children's book whose story features Claymills Pumping Station.
For several years now, the rats of Claymills Victorian Pumping Station have led young people on an exciting trail around the site.
So, when someone said, "Why don't we write stories about our rats", everybody said, "Great idea!"
Other people volunteered to make models and take photographs - and the Steam Rats team was born.
This web site gives you a taste of what you can see if you visit us.
We have four beam engines by Gimson of Leicester 1885,
Five boilers Thompson 1936-37, Steam driven workshop,
Forge and a 1930's dynamo house with early (1890's) Crompton dynamo driven by a Buxton and Thornley steam engine.
To give you a quick visit to the museum to show what we have in our care and the
activities that volunteers can get up to!
This is a database engine with scanned images of archival information about and from Claymills and the Burton on Trent area. The site has its own dedicated
search engine which just requires key words to search. It provides access to all the pictures and documents that have been scanned so far (841 at the last count). As this is a long term project it was decided to publish work done so far.
Note the new catalogue page and document index on the search results page. (comments please).
