Summerley Works, Idle Moor
Summerley Works, Idle Moor
A view inside the boiler shop of Israel Newton & Sons. The business is now relocated to Chapel en le Frith. The vertical boiler lying down on the left is now back in steam at the Black Country Living Museum, Dudley. In the centre is an inverted inner firebox for a locomotive type boiler (as used on traction engines and locomotives). The works had its own hydraulic power system and its work is well respected. The company is one of a few still doing work on traditional boilers.
