Forncett Industrial Steam Museum Appeal Success

In the summer of 2021 the Forncett Industrial Steam Museum launched an urgent funding appeal. This was for £14,000 to cover the cost of replacing the old steam pipework feeding some of the 18 full-sized steam engines on display, and getting this new system certificated.

The IHN East of England member launched an on-line appeal in June 2021 and this has now (October 2021) reached its target, with support coming from the friends of the museum and various other supporters. These funds will allow the steam pipeline system to be replaced over the winter, giving time for it to be certificated for full steaming in Spring 2022.
