The museum has changed a lot over the years, click here to see how we looked in 2003 (no front cover on this album) and for how we looked at end of season 2014, click on the highlighted date. 


NB it may take a little while to load the first time you click, there are a LOT of photographs it has to build up.

Engine Dating Enquiries  


The museum can provide a dating record service for Crossley, Tangye, Mirrlees, Blackstone and Gardner engines; even then we cannot guarantee that we have all the records but will provide what information we can from those available. To help us help you, please download and complete the attached form.  We currently can only handle queries via postal mail service not email requests.


Museum promo video on You Tube  


See a short promotional video about the museum on You Tube by clicking here.  A little artistic license but hopefully captures a real flavour of what we do at the museum. (NB be cafeful to only click once or you might open 2 windows and get an echo effect.)


Our thanks to Poynton Town Council and Mike Gallagher for the footage.  Earlier this summer a video "Welcome to Poynton" was produced and the museum had a short piece in that video, click here to see that video.  The Council and Mike have kindly allowed us to use extra footage taken for that video to have our own short promo video produced.
