TM0880 : Easton & Anderson Beam Pumping Engine

taken 10 years ago, near to Bressingham, Norfolk, Great Britain

Easton & Anderson Beam Pumping Engine
Easton & Anderson Beam Pumping Engine
Built in 1870 and installed at Banstead Hospital, Surrey; it was used to power a whole range of workshop equipment including the hospital laundry. Gradually electricity took over most of the duties and the pump finally stopped in 1970 after one hundred years. Bressingham engineers dismantled and removed the engine from the hospital in 1982 and it took just over a year to re-install it at Bressingham.

I think the boiler is Cochrane & Co Annan Ltd Vertical Boiler No. 21493 (1958) Originally oil fired but converted to coal providing steam for the stationary engines on steam days.
