Ledgard Bridge Mills - pusher steam engine
Ledgard Bridge Mills - pusher steam engine
The power of the original single cylinder beam engine SE2019 : Beam engine, Ledgard Bridge Mills was increased by "pusher compounding" with this horizontal engine taking steam at a high pressure and exhausting to the original beam engine cylinder at a lower pressure. The crank is attached to one of the gears transmitting power to the mill and the secondary crank drives the governor by ropes and the valve gear by gears to a transverse shaft carrying eccentrics. The governor is a Lumbs governor and there is a Lumbs recorder at the base of the governor. This engine was removed many years ago and is stored in the open at Wortley Top Forge.
