The Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum is a British museum in Walthamstow, London focusing on the pioneering achievements in road, rail, air and sea transport in the River Lea valley from the early 19th century. The aim of the museum is to show how the coming of the railways and the subsequent industrial development affected the Lea Valley area and its people.
