The Trust

The Kempton Great Engines Trust was formed in 1995 to create a museum at the Water Treatment Works at Kempton Park, to restore to live steam one of its two Triple Expansion Engines, and also to tell the story of the site. This plan is being given life by the volunteers and was made possible only because Thames Water has built us a steam boiler plant, and has given us full access under a 99 year lease. The Trust is a registered Charity (No. 1048936), and the museum is a registered National Monument (No. 153). This is the highest classification.
