Soulbury Pump House Exhibition
May 21, 2019 - July 20, 2019
Living Archive MK has recently been working with the Canal & River Trust to create family activities, educational resources and exhibitions to illuminate the history of the Soulbury Pumphouse, on the Grand Union canal adjacent to the Three Locks pub. The Pump House has been the subject of a National Lottery Heritage Fund renovation scheme which is now nearing completion.
On now at the Discover Milton Keynes space in Milton Keynes Central Library, you can see an exhibition about this work, which will run until 20 July.
If you’re in CMK pop in and visit – and see if you can find our VIP exhibits Rosie & Jim, kindly donated to us for the exhibition by our friends at Stoke Bruerne Canal Museum, who have also lent us other fascinating pieces of canal history. You can find out more about the Pumphouse renovation project, see the entries in our recent photography competition and pick up information about the walking trail and app we have created for a walk along the towpath from Soulbury to Fenny Stratford. The exhibition is open during library opening hours – please check the Library’s website for details.
