Prickwillow Museum, a registered educational charity, tells the story of the drainage of the Fens, the history of the local area and the individuals who ran the drainage pumps in remote locations.

The museum showcases some of the region’s finest examples of restored diesel engines.

They are always on the lookout for more volunteers.
