Nortonthorpe Mills, Scissett
Nortonthorpe Mills, Scissett, taken 10 years ago
Small steam engine display alongside the preserved Pollit & Wigzell mill rngine. The inverted vertical single is a Savage No. 3 organ engine. The larger horizontal is a Frank Pearn and I personally think it's a vacuum pump that has been connected to a steam supply. The technology is so similar that it will run on steam although it was originally driven by a motor. The little green engine is almost certainly a model.
