Crofton Beam Engines is a Grade 1 listed site, home to the oldest beam engine in the world still in its original location and still capable of carrying out the job for which it was built over 200 years ago. It is owned by The Kennet and Avon Canal Trust (KACT), a charitable company limited by guarantee, which currently supports Crofton’s annual operating deficit.
The Trust has been awarded a grant by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to carry out a resilience project– ‘Crofton 2030’ – whose overall aim is to develop a robust and deliverable strategy for Crofton to be a premier heritage attraction by 2030, worthy of its Grade 1 listed status.
