Bolton steam Museum 2009
Bolton steam Museum 2009
The Northern Mill Engine Society's museum getting closer to a finished state. I'm stood on top of the roof over the workshop that suports a new starage area and a very nice air compressor. Bottom right is the front of a Lancashire boiler with assorted feed pumps. The big lump in the left middle distance is the inverted vertical compound from Diamond Ropeworks, Royton. The big red vessel is on the Fern Mill firepump.

This is one of the best collections of its type anywhere and an absolute must for anybody interested in stationary steam.
