Science Museum - Pentrich atmospheric engine
Built by Francis Thompson in 1791 for Oakerthorpe Colliery near Derby and re-erected at Pentrich Colliery in 1841. The cylinder is 51.25" bore and the stroke was 7'. It could raise 220 gallons per minute through 360' at 8 strokes per minute - equivalent to 25 horsepower. The iron beam is a later replacement of the wooden original.

This is the biggest preserved Newcomen type engine in the country.
