The steam engine was installed at Trencherfield Mill in 1907 and is thought to be the world's largest original working mill steam engine. It has four-cylinders, a 70 tonne flywheel and produces 2,500 hp. Until the Mill's closure in the late 1960s it enabled power to be sent throughout the five floors of the mill to power thousands of cotton spinning machines.
