Papplewick Pumping Station is a favourite place of ours to visit for a couple of hours just to watch the huge beam engines in steam. This in turn means that we always visit over the Easter period to renew our annual membership and have a wander round. They are getting quite used to the crazy woman who spins on a drop spindle as she walks round the grounds.
In the grounds there is a large pond that supplies the water and this is used by a model boat club and we stopped to watch the boats drift quietly by.
All appeared calm and serene until ........as the owner said, he gets to play in all the water, not just on the surface!!
Have a good weekend :-)
