Date: 1st October 2017
Venue: Twyford Waterworks
SUNDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2017
For our Autumn excursion, by popular demand, we will be making a trip in a vintage restored Southdown coach to Twyford Waterworks in Hampshire. (SO21 1QA)
The day will start with pickups in Rusper Road, Horsham and Hop Oast Park & Ride. When everyone is aboard a direct route will be taken to the museum. The visit coincides with their popular end of season rally – steam engines, cars, stationary engines, demonstrations, displays, and miniature railway rides will form part of the day together with the restored waterworks themselves.
Twyford Waterworks is an Edwardian pumping station containing a unique selection of buildings and machinery within a rural downland setting in the heart of Hampshire. The site was given the status of a Scheduled Ancient Monument in 1973 and passed, as such, to the Southern Water Authority on 1st April 1974. In 1985 the Twyford Waterworks Trust was incorporated as a charity to run it.
For refreshments, their tea room is situated in the main building and is open from 10.45am serving a selection of hot and cold drinks, homemade cakes, sandwiches, soup, snacks and confectionery. Plus, on special event days, they have a BBQ serving locally sourced burgers & hot dogs.
Coach & museum entrance fee £33. Unlike previous SEAMS excursions, because the vintage coach only has 28 seats and this trip will be oversubscribed, your booking will only be confirmed on full receipt of the money.
