Wortley Top Forge - engine being re-erected
This is a horizontal tandem compound textile mill engine that is well on the way to being re-erected. The large lump by the flywheel is the airpump and condenser assembly that should be underneath the engine. This will not be happening die to the ground conditions and this will be just displayed alongside. There are plans to erect a partial cover over the engine in the first instance.

The engine was built in 1910 by Marsdens Engines of Heckmondwike and was used at Wilson Bros of Dewsbury. The Corliss valve cylinders are 12" & 24" x 36" and the flywheel is 14' diameter. It was god for 250 horsepower at 90 rpm. The information is from Arthur Roberts who also recorded the works' engineer as one Derek Giggle (titter ye not). The engine is named George III.
