The Old Engine House, Trench, Shropshire.
The Old Engine House, Trench, Shropshire.
High on the hill top and long after the insides had been removed this engine house was a notable landmark in the area. The beam engine it had once contained provided power to operate the Trench Inclined Plane, on which tub-boats were lowered from and raised to the high-level canal system connecting with Donnington Wood and other collieries. The engine house survived the initial building of the Newfield Garden Village housing development, but its days were numbered, and now it has passed into the land of memories.
