Claymills Victorian Pumping Station - steam fire engine
Claymills Victorian Pumping Station - steam fire engine
Borrowed from the local fire brigade, although currently on display at the National Brewery Centre. It was brought to the pumping station to celebrate 20 years since the keys were handed over to the Trust.

It has an inverted vertical duplex Scotch crank steam pump with a rapid-steaming vertical boiler. Although widely thought to be an 1876 Shand Mason, recent research strongly supports this being by William Rose of Salford - of the Metropolitan type and as such it is the only Rose fire engine on the UK mainland. The date is now thought to be about 1899. It was towed to the site by a Ferguson tractor.
