GIANT working steam engines will be on show at Brede Waterworks on Easter Monday along with an eye-catching display of classic cars.

The special Easter Open Day takes place from 10am - 4pm with the classic cars on display from 1pm - 4pm.

The huge Victorian steam engines were restored to their former glory due to a labour of love by enthusiasts Brede Steam Engine Society.

The steam engines were once used to draw water from below the valley floor to supply much of the Hastings area.

Also open will be a cold war nuclear bunker in the valley.

Admission to the event is free and there is ample free parking. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.

The waterworks are situated in the Brede Valley and signposted from the A28 at the top of Brede Hill by St George’s Church.

John Foxley, from the Society, said: “Please come along and enjoy the atmosphere of water pumping heritage engineering at it’s British best.”
