The Claverton Pumping Station is a rare example of the technology of the Late Georgian – Regency – period. Built in 1813, the year Jane Austen published Pride and Prejudice, this amazing pump uses the power of the River Avon to lift water up 48ft into the Kennet and Avon Canal above. Burning no fuel and making no waste it is the ultimate in environmentally friendly technology. You can see the machinery in operation and enjoy the refreshments and scenery of the unspoilt Limpley Stoke valley on our lawns. We also run a programme of family days and other events.
