Map & Directions

Road Directions

Crofton Beam Engines are situated about 5 km (3 miles) south of the A4 between Hungerford and Marlborough. Follow the brown “Beam Engines” signs from that stretch of the A4, the A338 at East Grafton or the A346 at Burbage. For Satnav users, the post code is SN8 3DW.

Public Transport Directions

The nearest rail station is Bedwyn on the Paddington to Exeter line. Walk to the canal, which is adjacent to the station, and take the towpath in a westerly direction for about 3 km (2 miles) and you will see the pumping station on your right by lock 60. Cross the canal here and take the tunnel under the railway and the stairs up to the engine house.
