Can this be called a Grand Day Out?
a DemiGrand day out? After all only two Gits went...
After donning our Hard Hats we were allowed into the pump room.

I must say a Very Big Thank you to all those wonderful volunteers
who have worked so hard so that all of us can appreciate this
amazing piece of Victorian engineering - Well done everyone!

Before and after a clean-up and careful paint job

Lots more still to do!

The Prince Consort Engine has been renovated - Victoria is next

How things looked before renovating (Alan wearing Hard hat)

How things look now - thank you Peter
Thank you so much for having the courage to pose with Minkey

This took a lot of careful work - see these smashing videos:-
