Water supply through the ages

Herefordshire's Wells & Springs

The Waterworks Museum is housed in Hereford’s Victorian water pumping station but its collection includes artefacts, each of which tells a story, gathered from across Herefordshire.

We started with Ross because the Museum has more engines and pumps from Alton Court water works, which served Ross for around 100 years from the 1870’s, than from any other location after Hereford City. At Easter 2018, the Museum held the first of a series of annual events focusing on historic water supplies and discovering the new stories that lie behind them.
