St Aidans Walking Dragline

Come and see 'Oddball', the largest preserved walking dragline excavator in Western Europe. Look all round outside and see the giant 25 cubic yard bucket. Go inside the machine and see all the motors and winding gear. Sit in the driver’s seat! Take in the view from the jib! See working models and video displays in the substation.
