See a working waterwheel power an 18th century beam pump and explore an enchanting riverside heritage site.

An exhibition explains the history of Coultershaw – the early use of water power and the installation in 1782 of a pump to provide water to Petworth House and town 1½ miles to the north. Then take a tour of the site including an engine house with hands-on exhibits, canal warehouses and stables and the remains of a canal lock. Water power is still very much in use at Coultershaw with a 21st century Archimedes screw turbine generating electricity – the only hydro power station on public view in the South East.

There is so much to see and explore at this volunteer-run site. For a preview view our virtual panoramic tour

Coultershaw is open on the first and third Sundays from Easter to September and for special events. Opening times and more information can be found on our website www.coultershaw.co.uk
