taken 13 years ago, near to Renishaw, Derbyshire, Great Britain

The Old Sawmill Renishaw Hall
The Old Sawmill Renishaw Hall
The old sawmill on the Renishaw Hall estate originally provided electricity to the hall using a water driven generator.
Later it was adapted for use as a sawmill driven first by a water turbine and then by steam. The steam engine, a Ruston's stationary engine, was originally ordered by Imperial Russia but was never delivered because of the Revolution.

The engine has been restored and is on display in the stable yard.
