Papplewick Pumping Station

Recording the Bolton and Watts Beam Engine at the beautiful  Papplewick Pumping Station in Nottinghamshire at the weekend went well, helped by the accommodating and friendly team of volunteers, and director Ashley.
After Bobby & Nils set up a range of microphones throughout the building, the engine was started up, and all present maintained silence for nearly an hour while the recordings were made.

Then the doors were opened to the public for a vibrant Steampunk themed day!
