Anson Engine Museum

UK»England»Cheshire»Anson Engine Museum

The Anson Engine Museum is situated on the site of the old Anson colliery in Poynton, Cheshire. It is the result of years of work by Les Cawley and Geoff Challinor who began collecting and showing stationary engines for a hobby. Today the museum has one of the largest collection of engines in Europe and attracts stationary engine enthusiasts from around the globe. The museum has secured many early examples from other major museums eg Science Museums of London, Edinburgh, Birmingham & Bristol. This will allow it to tell the story of the engine from the cannon to the sophisticated, electronically controlled engine of the future.
