Bolton Steam Museum 2024

The museum is on the old Atlas Mills site in Bolton and displays around 30 stationary steam engines that used to provide power in the textile mills of the north of England. Larger engines include a giant 40 ton 'McNaughted' beam engine, a very rare 1840 twin-beam engine and a unique 'non-dead-centre' vertical engine built by Musgraves of Bolton.
