Exmouth Museum - steam engine
Exmouth Museum - steam engine, taken 15 years ago
Exmouth Museum is home to a horizontal single cylinder engine built by J J Lane of London, possibly originally for a laundry in Exmouth.

The engine's history is uncertain but after its removal from commercial use it
is known to have stood in the open for a number of years. Later it was
acquired by the University of Exeter for a number of years, where it
apparently cluttered up a corridor. The engine was moved to the Museum with the assistance of the Royal Marines from nearby Lympstone.

It is a horizontal single cylinder engine with a cylinder of 8" bore by 12".
Flywheel 53" diameter with a 4 3/4" face. A small description adjacent to
the engine declares that it developed 15 bhp when running at 80 rpm on 100
psi steam.
