The Stationary Steam Engine, which was once the driving force of industry, is nowadays, rarely seen in the work environment. However they can still be admired and marvelled at, by visiting places such as Steam Museums, Industrial Heritage Sites and Preserved Engine Sites etc. Some of the engines are still in their original engine houses.

The steam museum has on display some fine examples of working stationary steam engines, marine steam engines and steam pumps, large and small . The collection, which is still growing, is privately owned and has been aquired over several years from a wide range of sources. Now housed in a purpose built building, they have been lovingly restored, rebuilt and maintained by a dedicated team of full time and volunteer workers, who are always willing to show you around and explain things to you - so why not pay us a visit.
The museum is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm with the engines usually in steam every Wednesday;
(It's as well to telephone before setting off :- 01302 330430).
Admission is FREE.
Coach parties are also more than welcome.
