The Westonzoyland Pumping Station Museum of Steam Power and Land Drainage is a small industrial heritage museum dedicated to steam powered machinery. It is a Grade II* listed building.
While the Bridgwater & Taunton Canal connects the two towns of Bridgwater and Taunton, the majority of the canal is rural, making it a wonderful spot for nature enthusiasts. One of the canal’s highlights is the unique Somerset Space Walk. A scale model of the sun can be found at Maunsel Lock, with planets set along the towpath for six miles in both directions, demonstrating the scale of the solar system. Maunsel Lock is also home to a canal centre offering boat trips, refreshments and information on the local area including walking routes.
Maunsel Lock Canal Centre
Maunsel Lock Canal Centre and Tea Shop is run by Nicky. All ages can enjoy the tranquillity of canal life.
The walking and cycle routes are even and well positioned, so you can relax while you explore the canal. You can also follow the Somerset Space Walk. If you require some refreshments the Maunsel Lock Tea Shop is a great place to stop. Cream teas, cold drinks, ice creams, sandwiches, light lunches and homemade cake are usually available.

Located in the village of Cannington, Somerset, The Walled Gardens of Cannington lie within the grounds of a medieval priory. Many of the fine buildings and the walls of the garden remain. After extensive redevelopment, the gardens were officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward. They have been accredited as a ‘quality assured visitor attraction’ by VisitEngland and named as a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) partner garden. The gardens are home to a Plant Heritage National Plant Collection® of Deschampsia and Santolina. All are displayed in a modern prairie style planting in the Collections Garden. The gardens have a Tea Room, Plant Nursery and Gift Shop which can all be accessed without the need to visit the gardens. There’s plenty to see and do for all the family!
The wetlands are amazing for wildlife, but they can also do a lot of great stuff for people. The more reasons we can give people to love wetlands, the more chances we’ll get to create, restore and protect them. Steart Marshes is WWT’s first big Working Wetland. It’s home to a vast array of wildlife and it’s a place that people love to visit. Steart Marshes was once arable farmland and it continues to be farmed with livestock by local graziers. These graziers are able to market their saltmarsh lamb and beef for a premium as its flavour is so valued. The tidal creeks that run across Steart Marshes shelter fish fry which, in turn, attract herons and egrets.
