Help required by Hollycombe Steam Collection

Hollycombe is a nationally important steam collection of historic engines who is rebuilding its Sawmill – a project titled ‘Trees To The Trenches’  to bring back to life, the Robey WWI engine.

Alongside this are two civil engineering projects which require some engineering advice:

  • Firstly, on the installation of a rare hand crane from the 1860s. An engineer is needed to design suitable foundations for such a crane.
  • The second  is the design of a suitable base for a 1890s mill engine.

We would be most grateful for any suggestions or help. If anyone can help please get in touch with membership@newcomen.com.
