Blists Hill Victorian Town - ironworks
Blists Hill Victorian Town - ironworks
This ironworks has been reconstructed using equipment salvaged from Atlas Works in Bolton and includes a large steam hammer (to the right) and a rolling stand in front of the photographer driven by an engine in the building beyond. This plant is operated occasionally to rework salvaged wrought iron and is a real treat. I've seen the smaller rolling mill running but I'm hoping to see the hammer and big mill in use very shortly - watch this space.
