The Waterworks Museum, Lancashire boiler
The Waterworks Museum, Lancashire boiler, taken 4 years ago
The Waterworks Museum was formerly known as Broomy Hill Pumping Station but has recently had a more inclusive appellation. The Riley Bros Lancashire boiler has Meldrum's system of under fire steam that produces producer gas on passing through the fire bed. The boiler has been out of use for some years and there is a small package boiler round the back. The TV programme Blue Peter showed this boiler being cleaned out many years ago when it was still in use for the regular steamings.
