This was associated with the steam engine seen here - SD4798 : Steam engine, Staveley Woodturning Ltd. and is one of relatively few examples I've ever seen. This uses cold water injected from above flowing through nozzles to entrain and condense the steam. It is very simple with no moving parts and at this site would have used the head from the river that also drives water turbine plant. This was through a boarded up opening in the wall but this was opened up so we could take a look.
