Country Crafts at The Waterworks Museum

On Sunday 4th July 2021, craftsmen from Herefordshire’s ‘The Cart Shed’ will entertain visitors by demonstrating their skills at the Waterworks Museum in Hereford as the first open day of 2021 takes place.

Craftsmen from The Cart Shed will demonstrate country skills such as wood carving, whittling and basket weaving and wood turning by use of a shaving horse and a pole lathe.

This will be the first family open day at the Waterworks Museum since it closed its doors in March 2020 due to Covid-19.  All available engines and pumps will be running, with volunteer engineers on hand to tell you more about the history of the engines.

The Waterworks Museum – Hereford is one of Herefordshire’s leading visitor attractions with something for all ages.  Children enjoy using hands on exhibits, including in the unique Heritage Water Park, and the museum has a permanent exhibition to Hereford in WW2.  Every exhibit is waiting to tell a story.

Visitors can see the UK’s widest range of working pumps and engines from across Herefordshire, neighbouring counties and Wales, most of which are the last working examples of their type.  Heritage engineering at its best – and wholly run by volunteers.
