Reasons for trip

We spent the day at Papplewick Pumping Station. “TimeLine Events” organise various photographic experiences at different locations throughout the country. These are for photographers of all levels. I’m just the happy snapper but my husband is more of an expert. (The photos I’ve included were all taken by me) There were professional fashion models, Steam Punk characters and vintage 1940’s re-enactors. I had just my usual lighweight Panasonic Lumix GX-8 camera with me, while others had an array of equipment for their photography. . Nevertheless, I was pleased with the resulting photos that I took,

Papplewick Pumping Station is located north of Nottingham and is one of the best examples of decorative Victorian engineering. The pump house and industrial boiler room were very ornate with solid wood doors, brass work, decorative ironwork pillars and stained glass windows. More like a palace or cathedral than an industrial building!

The whole of the building, including the grounds, was restricted to a small group of photographers and models, so there was ample space for social distancing. We were also given Covid instructions at the start so that everyone was kept safe.

I can recommend “TimeLine Events” for those who like taking photos of people. Papplewick Pumping Station itself is ideal for families who want to learn more about industrial heritage.
