Description : A steam pumping engine built by Hathorn Davey of Leeds in 1893 and formerly used at Marine Colliery. It was installed there when the colliery was completed, in a chamber beneath the winding engine on the down cast shaft. The engine could deal with 50000 gallons of water per hour when working at 7 strokes/minute. The engine was rescued during site clearance operations and relocated to one side of a new car park, set on a concrete plinth. It is built entirely of cast iron, and has been thoroughly painted since re-erection. (02)
