Friar's Goose Pumping Engine

  • Description

    "These remains housed an engine built by Robert Stephenson in the early 19c. for pumping water from the coal mines below. Every pump stroke lifted about 195 galls and with one stroke every 10 seconds this removed over 1,500,000 gallons per day." Photo by Mick Garratt, 2005.
