Car Information: Classic cars, vans and bikes, pre 1998 only, and must stay till 3pm. The Museum is now regarded as one of the finest industrial monuments in the North East of England, and is in a Grade II (starred) listed building. Although the station no longer pumps water, the two 100 horsepower beam engines are kept in working order by volunteer members of the Ryhope Engines Trust, and 'steamed' periodically for the benefit of our visitors. In addition to the beam engines, built by R & W Hawthorn, are three 'Lancashire' boilers of 1908, two of which are in regular use, a blacksmith's forge, a waterwheel, numerous steam engines and pumps, waterworks accessories such as depth recorders, and many items concerned with the distribution and uses of water in home and industry - including pieces of wooden water pipe! http://www.ryhopeengines.org.uk/ Location: Ryhope Engines Museum is located just off the B1522 (formerly part of the A1018), three miles south of Sunderland city centre, next to Ryhope General Hospital, and is signposted from several points in Ryhope village.
