Full steam ahead at Ellenroad !

Tommorow (sunday) is you first chance this year to see Ellenroad Engine House has the only fully-working cotton mill engine with its original steam-raising plant, in full steam. The awesome 3,000 horsepower Victoria and Alexandra (1892), a coal-fired Lancashire boiler and other machines, like the Whitelees beam engine, are still working perfectly after more than 160 years!

The engine house is in steam from 12.00 to 4pm and there is a unique collection on view from the North West Meccano Guild. 200 yds of M62.

Further details available at their website ... not to be missed!
