Ellenroad Mill engines
Ellenroad Mill engines
These engines, which are situated in the Engine House visible from the M62, used to power one of the last steam driven Lancashire Mills. The mill itself has since been demolished, but the twin engines Victoria and Alexandra are preserved and run monthly for visitors. They are the largest mill engines surviving and used to power the mill machinery via a ropeway around the flywheel in the picture which in turn drove the lineshafts on each floor of the mill.
