Trencherfield Mill Steam Engine is one of the largest and finest working examples of its type. Built over 100 years ago, this mammoth metal powerhouse was regarded as a feat of industrial engineering. Churning out a massive 2,500 horse power to feed the ever hungry machinery of Trencherfield Mill, it played an instrumental role in Wigan's industrial development.
Visitors to Trencherfield Mill and the Wigan Pier Quarter are now once again able to awe at this giant's immense size and power, but more importantly, experience it working as it did all those years ago- full steam ahead!
