Welcome to our Steam Museum

Believed to be the largest private collection of steam engines in the UK


We are not just a Steam museum, we are steeped in history going back several generations. On March 4th 1824, 29 respected politian's and businessmen got together in a pub in London and started a movement that would save lives to this day. Sir Charles Flower was one of those men who started what is now the RNLI.

We have a great variety of steam engines, cars and tractors in our museum. Come and see for your own eyes! A great day out for the family.


The history makes our museum special

In 1881 William James Holmes returned from Scotland (his father having married the daughter of Sir Charles Flower). His son William Charles Flower Homes took over the estate in 1908 and built a generator and produced the first electricity in Strumpshaw.

The family traditions still live on in the museum, a place where the past can be seen in all the steam engines and the farm machinery that helped shape our future. Bring a picnic lunch, sit in the paddock on a Summer's day and just enjoy the view.
