Quarry Bank Mill, Styal - beam engine
Quarry Bank Mill, Styal - beam engine
Although built as a water powered mill steam assistance was added with a beam engine initially and then a later horizontal engine. These engines are long gone, although there is a surviving and very unusual variation on the Lancashire boiler theme.

This engine was acquired from an enthusiast in Macclesfield who had largely erected in it a very ramshackle former shop building. It is a single cylinder house-built engine by an unknown builder and dating from the 1830s or 1840s. It was used at Challinor's Macclesfield Steam Sawmills and was disused after 1912. It is demonstrated in steam at Styal.
