Calderdale Industrial Museum - beam engine
This museum has been mothballed for some years but there are hopes that it can be reopened with volunteer staff.

The engine is an A-frame beam engine by an unknown maker c1860s an from the ICI explosives works at Stevenson, Ardeer. The cylinder is 15" x 30". It had been preserved without its flywheel and a gear has been used to replace this missing item. This was one of three workable engines at the museum and it is to be hoped that it can be seen in steam again.
