The Soulbury Pumphouse
Soulbury Pumphouse Exhibition
May 21, 2019 - July 20, 2019
Living Archive MK has recently been working with the Canal & River Trust to produce this exhibition which tells the story of the history of the Soulbury Pumphouse, on the Grand Union canal adjacent to the Three Locks pub. The Pumphouse has recently been restored as part of a National Lottery Heritage Fund renovation scheme.
If you’re in CMK pop in and visit – and see if you can find our VIP exhibits Rosie & Jim, kindly donated to us for the exhibition by our friends at Stoke Bruerne Canal Museum, who have also lent us other fascinating pieces of canal history. You can find out more about the Pumphouse restoration project, see the entries in our recent photography competition and pick up information about the walking trail app we have created for a walk along the towpath from Soulbury to Fenny Stratford. The exhibition is open during library opening hours – please check the Library’s website for details.
As part of this exhibition we will be running a children's canal folk art work shop on 6 July, 10.00 - 12.00
Work with artist Emma Wilde to create your own colourful canal folk art! We will decorate wooden spoons and paper plates with the traditional roses and castles designs, painting in bold and bright colours associated with narrow boat art work.
Suitable for ages 6 – 12.
Tickets are FREE but you will need to book in advance via the Eventbrite link here
