The Oldest Fire Engine in Town - By Joseph Bramah

All modern fire-fighting appliances owe their origins to Joseph Bramah. The Fire Pump is one of Barnsley’s most historic treasures, a fine example of an early fire engine, believed to be the only one made by Bramah still in existence. 

Throughout the Summer, Joseph Bramah’s Fire Pump will be on display at Experience Barnsley Museum.

Free Exhibition, donations welcome.


Due to the pandemic, we were unable to proceed with our planned Summer exhibition Tailor Made in Barnsley, but we have rescheduled this for 2023
