Repp's Wind Engine Collection
Repp's Wind Engine Collection
This is a scoop wheel in working order. By far the most common method of raising water in East Anglia, via wind, diesel or steam. Later turbines and pumps became more commonplace. This example worked nearby with a diesel engine.
Morse Wind Engine Collection - Repps, Norfolk
A collection of images from the Bob Morse wind engine collection. A variety of drainage and pumping relics in a private (but regularly open) collection in the Norfolk Broads.
Ranging from older wooden bodies machines to tall Wallis Tit engines and steam driven turbines.
