E S Hindley of Bourton horizontal single cylinder steam engine from The Gillingham Pottery, Brick & Tile Co. This engine is similar to the one installed in the water works building opposite and long since scrapped. It is now displayed in a purpose built building and steamed from a vertical boiler (not running on this visit due to boiler problems). It has a hand adjusted Rider type expansion slide valve, four bar crosshead guides and a Pickering governor. Considering that it was stored in the open for many years, it has cleaned up quite well.
