In Steam 10.00am - 4.00pm. Volunteers from the Northern Mill Engine Society have rescued and restored 27 old stationary steam engines - some of the engines which once powered the cotton mills and woollen mills of the north of England. Most will be running in steam on these 2 days. Our collection includes 2 rare beam engines (the oldest is around 170 years old!) and a unique Bolton-built “non-dead-centre” engine. We have just rescued another very old and unusual engine from the scrapman. After lying in pieces in a field in Yorkshire for over 30 years, our volunteers have now restored it to working order. It will be running in steam once again after 35 years. Free admission, and free unlimited parking on the Supermarket car park.
27 old textile mill engines, now fully restored to working order.
