Parkandillick Cornish Beam Engine
Parkandillick Cornish Beam Engine
A preserved Cornish beam pumping engine alongside a working clayworks. There is also a boiler, boiler feed-pump and waste haulage engine within the buildings. A low pressure blower exhausting into the boiler used to be able to turn the beam engine over. I don't know if this is still possible. This is the best engine in "the clay" area.
