Come and let off Steam at the Welwyn Festival!
NEW: STATIC (STEAM & PETROL-POWERED) ENGINES
On Singlers Marsh, on Saturday 2nd July, from 1pm to 5pm
For the first time this year, engineering enthusiasts from all ages will be able to admire a variety of static steam and petrol powered engines in action on Singlers Marsh on Saturday 2nd July (from mid-morning till 5pm).
‘Living’ exhibits include a 1911 German-built coal-fired Stirling engine used in powering factory or farm equipment, an American Stover petrol engine dating 1910 and a 1941 petrol-powered water pump used in large manor houses in the ‘good old days’ before modern plumbing and central heating were taken for granted. Come and see how the world started to empower men by getting engines do the hard work and bring creature comfort to our lives.
A piece of history that is bound to keep children fascinated and adults intrigued! Take a look at these feats of engineering from the past as you enjoy an afternoon at the Welwyn Festival Family Fun Day!
