Astley Green Colliery

The Lancashire Mining Museum at Astley Green is the last remaining headgear and engine house in the Lancashire coalfield. The winding engine is preserved in the engine house and is run occasionally, currently on compressed air but the Museum is hoping to return it to steam in due course. This 3300HP twin tandem compound behemoth raised 8 tons of coal nearly half a mile to the surface every two minutes! It's not easy to convey the size of the engine in a few photos as it's pretty much impossible to get both pairs of cyclinders in the same image owing to the presence of display stands in the way. I felt that a b&w treatment suited the subject. Thanks for looking!

Re: Astley Green Colliery

Well, your RX8 probably doesn't need a garage this big .
