We did not realise this was at the back of the tourist information shop. Free to see, but voluntary contribution appreciated. Pleasant surprise to find. Only 2 minutes walk from town square and well worth it.
We managed to find parking by the Tourist Information Office and saw it advertising the Thomas Newcomen Engine. The original and historic Atmospheric steam engine is housed in a small room attached to the tourist information office, free access but donations welcome. I watched a short video presentation about the steam engine which has now been adapted to work by... 更多
Sadly the weather wasn't the greatest when we visited, so we thought we'd do something different. The visit to see these great big engines was a good way to fill our time and also showed the kids just how far we have come in terms of technology.
What a great inspiration to us all - this guy invented this great piece of machinery when they did not have the technology we have today. Fantastic

How cool is that? It wasn't working but it was a thrill to see nonetheless. The short video from Adam Hart-Davis puts it... 更多

Even though the engine was not running, I was not disapointed at all!!! I have seen several beam engines, all of which were... 更多
Found this amazing little wonder, based adjacent to the tourist information centre. Tiny but all the more brilliant for just how significant this piece of engineering is. Free entry, with a donation box
