SJ3691 : Ogden's tobacco factory power house

taken 35 years ago, near to Liverpool, England

Ogden's tobacco factory power house.
Ogden's tobacco factory power house.
A pair of 430 horsepower inverted vertical compound steam engines built 1923 by Browett, lindley of Patricroft. These were stopped by 1974 but remained on standby in to the 1990s. The works has now closed and it is believed they may have been removed or scrapped. This was one of the last decent multi-engine power houses in the mainland of the UK and it is to be regretted that English Heritage would not afford it any form of statutory protection (the office block is listed).
