Went to the Anson Engine Museum and was completely taken aback by the amount of engines they have there. Whether you like steam, diesel or petrol they have them all, and they work. They are not just for looking at. Some of the engine are linked up to hammers, generators you name it they probably have it somewhere on site. A must see is the model of the estate of Lord Vernon. It is a magnificent piece of model engineering. It replicates how it was many years ago. The tiny houses are exact replicas of the original houses that were there. If you take a overhead camera shot you would think it was taken from a hot air balloon. Outside is a workshop area where they have “bodgers” making outdoor furniture and showing how to turn wood on a foot operated lathe. There is a furnace where they heat up metal and then move it to the 3cwt belt driven hammer. The ground vibrates every time it hits the metal being worked. A real treat to see so many engines that still work and the whole place is a credit to the team.
