Temporary barriers replaced by railings at London Museum of Water and Steam

Temporary barriers replaced by railings at London Museum of Water and Steam

The London Museum of Water & Steam is a museum founded in 1975, originally known as the Kew Bridge Steam Museum. The museum is based in the former Kew Bridge Waterworks and tells the story of London’s water supply. The London Museum of Water & Steam is home to the world’s largest collection of stationary steam pumping engines and a narrow-gauge steam locomotive.

Following a successful grant funding application from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Alpha Rail was approached by The London Museum of Water & Steam to supply and install vertical bar railings along with three gates to the car park area of the museum.

In total, Alpha Rail manufactured and installed 19 linear metres of standard vertical bar railings, two 1 metre wide pedestrian gates and a 3 metre wide vehicular gate. All materials are hot dipped galvanised as standard and will provide a secure perimeter to the car park.

Liz Power, Museum Director at London Museum of Water & Steam commented, “We have always had temporary railings that separate the car park and the goods yard of the museum. With funding for the National Lottery Heritage Fund we were able to have permanent railing put in, with a pedestrian gate and a double leaf car park access gate. This will enable us to host events for the community in our car park space, and has made the museum a safer place for our visitors, staff and volunteers. We are really pleased with the railings and it has made a massive difference to the museum.”
