Anson Engine Museum - cross compound steam engine
This 1903 S S Stott of Haslingden horizontal cross compound engine is claimed to be the largest workable steam engine in Cheshire. It has a Corliss valve high pressure cylinder and a slide valve low pressure cylinder with a belt drive wheel.

I visited it on this occasion as I had been misled into believing this was its first public steaming. in fact that was not until 2011 and it was to be 2016 before I saw it run.
