SE1115 : George Street Mills, powerhouse

George Street Mills, powerhouse
George Street Mills, powerhouse
This engine house once held a horizontal tandem compound mill engine but when I took this was home to two working Belliss and Morcom steam engines installed in 1980 and 1983. They ran into the early 1990s and were scrapped in 1997. They were part of a highly sensible combined heat and power scheme and this concept is certainly not dead. On this visit I learnt about four engines in a powerhouse at Deanshanger Oxides.
