September club meeting

For the September Club meeting on Monday 10th September we have Peter Turvey giving a talk on Crofton Beam Engines.

Crofton has the oldest working steam engines in the world still performing the job they were built to do! There are two beam engines, one of which is an original 206-year-old Boulton & Watt. Both are fed by a hand-stoked, coal-fired Lancashire boiler. These are magnificent pieces of industrial archaeology. The engine house is set in unspoiled Wiltshire countryside close to the old market town of Marlborough.
