May Day Bank Holiday Steamingsworking mill steam engines
Our volunteers have rescued and restored over 30 old stationary steam engines, some of the engines which once powered the cotton mills and woollen mills of the North of England. Most will be running in steam on these days only, as the Museum is...
Parking & Other
We are open 10am-4pm
We are always pleased to see interested visitors at the museum on most Wednesdays and Sundays, since these are the days when we have volunteers working on site. However, the engines are normally only viewable under static conditions (it may be possible to show a few in motion with electric drive) and between Open Days there may be minor access restrictions due to building and engine maintenance work. If you are planning to travel any distance, other than on an Open Day, it is best to check beforehand.
