Bolton Steam Museum - Double Beam Engine
Bolton Steam Museum - Double Beam Engine
Twin beam engine from Crossfield Mill, Wardle. The only surviving textile mill example. It was later rebuilt with one new cylinder for higher pressure and subsequently ran as a single. Although there are two cylinders of different sizes it was never run as a compound. (Chris Allen)

The Watt governor was clearly inspired from wind/water mills.
