Crofton Beam Engine.

What a fabulous tranquil spot this was right between the old pumping engine and Wilton Water. The beam engine  site is open at weekends and sometime in steam,. The entrance was through a little tunnel under the railway line and up some steps.

Wagtails were busy catching flies to feed their hatchlings, ducks were diving and House Martins were collecting mud to build their nests under the eaves.

Next morning we left in more brilliant sunshine. Above the lock Gary left Hamish in charge while he went below to search for his sunglasses.
