HRS 1657 Dee Mill engine 1973

"The engine was one of the finest examples of a Lancashire mill engine, representing in many peoples' eyes one of the highest points of steam engineering technology. Built by Scott and Hodgson of Guide Bridge, Ashton-under-Lyne in 1907, it was a twin-tandem design with HP cylinders of 21" and LP's of 44" developing 1500 IHP at 65rpm. The 26ft flywheel was grooved for 38 ropes." Source:www.nmes.org (Northern Mill Engine Society)
