In 1983 this engine was still regularly powering the brewery machinery but is now only used for demonstration. It is a horizontal single cylinder engine built 1899 by Buxton & Thornley of Burton-on-Trent. The cylinder is c10" x 22" and it is fitted with drop inlet (steam) valves with the governor operating variable cut-off. The exhaust valves are of the semirotary (or Corliss) type. The flywheel is 7' diameter. The engine was rated at 25 horsepower at 110-115 rpm on steam at 80-100 psi. In the background are some of the pumps that it operated to mover liquor around the brewery. The guarding had been moved to allow this photograph.
