All of the funding needed to conserve the buildings and engines of Joseph Bazalgette’s “cathedral on the marsh” comes from visitors to the site,  needless to say we have zero visitors & zero funding at present,  during this difficult lock down period.
 
Please would you donate what you can afford, 

to enable the volunteers to give this unique, 

world famous site the maintenance & care it 

deserves?
