To anyone who hasn't visited Papplewick and seen the magnificent Victorian engine house with The Beast in steam then you have missed a real 'jaw-dropper'. We also have one of the most pleasant model boating ponds in the UK, surrounded all the way with rounded concrete edging. The water level is a little low at present (well, yesterday) so launching cradles are recommended. The car park is just across the road and it's no more than 100m walk from car park to pond-side. BTW Papplewick Pumping Station is about 8 miles north of Nottingham, just off the A60 Mansfield Road and about 6 miles from M1 Junction 27.

Along with other Kirklees club members I attended this event. The lake is set in the grounds of the pump station and is quite large with a depth of about 3 feet. The beam engine and boiler room are well worth a visit. I did manage to get some pictures, more to follow. Thank you to the pump station staff for looking after us during our visit
