Whitewebbs has a fabulously varied collection, housed over 4 floors of a Victorian pumping station, of vehicles motorbikes, bicycles, pedal cars, model railway, typewriters and WW1 & WW2 memorabilia - including an air-raid siren you can operate! There is a purpose built fire station and a range of workshops outside.
The Museum was built in 1898 and was originally a pumping station. It pumped water from the well beneath the main building into the new river to London. Having lain dormant for some years the Enfield and District Trust breathed life into this spectacular old building converting it into a Museum. The well can be viewed on request.
Whitewebbs is open from 10am - 4pm and admission is £7 per person. Car parking is free. www.whitewebbsmuseum.co.uk.
