Prickwillow Drainage Engine Museum
The Heritage Engineering Network
The Heritage Engineering Network (H.E.N.) encourages all volunteers and staff with interest in the use and management of heritage machinery to attend its meetings. The Network supports the management and delivery of specialised skills in museums and other bodies who carry out working activities with machinery in the area of industrial heritage.
The morning session will focus on the interpretation of exhibits when the engines and equipment are not running, with speakers from within the network.
The team at Prickwillow will demonstrate how they interpret their collections with a series of new films, together with project costs and plans for the future.
Staff from the Museum of Power will also talk about how they plan to illustrate their Lilleshal engine when it is not running.
The afternoon will take the form of an open forum on how museums can attract visitors outside of special event days, when engines, machinery or exhibitions are static.
