Today marked a great milestone in the long term overhaul of our Taylor and Hubbard Steam Crane. The first fire was lit in the boiler for over ten years after an extensive rebuild of the boiler. The team that carried out most of the work are pictured here as they waited for the fire to slowly raise pressure for the first time. Photos Courtesy of Chris Hatton.
