Ellenroad Engine House


Home of the World's Largest Steam Mill Engine, the Marsden engine and the Whitelees Beam Engine built in 1841. See one of the finest examples of a giant steam Mill Engine in the country. The engines, Alexandra and Victoria, were used to power the Ellenroad Cotton Spinning Mill. The mill has gone now but the Engine House, complete with its coal-fired steam--raising plant and 220 foot chimney, is in preservation. There are other engines, pumps and equipment, re-created 1910 belt driven workshop and a Steam driven Electrical Generator;
