Part funding for the new building came from WREN - see description958 viewsThe museum had been successful in raising some of the money for the new building thanks to Landfill Tax credit funding of 25,000 from the Waste Recycling Group Ltd, administered by WREN. It also raised further contributions from the Cheshire Rural Tourism Development Grant Scheme to enhance the experience for visitors, especially those that make such efforts to visit Cheshire. This still however left a large proportion of the costs to be met by the museum funds.

Stott Steam Engine931 viewsalthough not new to the museum, we had this engine turning over on electric power on Sunday 10th September for the first time. The restoration project is making fantastic progress. The volunteers have replaced the big end bearings, the air pump condenser has been put into place and they are now working on the difficult job of lining up the rocking beam mechanism. Our plan is to have the engine in steam in 2007, funds and resources willing.
