From 1849 Tees Cottage Pumping Station revolutionized water supply in Darlington and Teesside by offering cleaner, piped water to inhabitants who had previously relied on wells and rainwater tubs. At The Festival of Ingenuity you will be able to learn more about this wonderful piece of Darlington's heritage which is still pumping water from the River Tees using equipment which is over 100 years old - though it no longer supplies the town's water!
