The Hereford Waterworks Museum have shared some good news after a frustrating year of closure. The Hereford Waterworks Museum is delighted to acknowledge the award of a National Lottery Heritage Fund UK grant which will fund the installation of a new entrance to the Southall Gallery (as part of a one-way system) and improve facilities in the visitor centre, which will help make the Museum Covid-safe for visitors and volunteers.

Work on these critical safety measures has commenced but will require an extended closure of the Museum until January 2021.

The new entrance to the Southall Gallery will be created by installation of a covered walkway between the fire exits in the Museum’s meadow car-park, which will be the start of a one-way route to visit the Grade II* Victorian water pumping station. This will also have the added benefit of allowing visitors to see the exhibits in the Southall Gallery from a wholly new perspective!
