Thomas Hudson, Sheepford Boiler Works - old boiler
This shot nicely showcases an old egg-ended boiler re-used as a tank.
The egg-ended was a low pressure, externally fired design. Essentially a design from the first half of the nineteenth century, some remained in use until the middle of the twentieth century. The brick building to its left housed a Marshall steam engine.
