This unusual and fascinating museum used to be one of the best kept secrets among Cheshire's many attractions. Over the past few years it has undergone some major changes and is now recognised as one of the Country’s leading specialist museums.

Situated just south of Manchester on the site of the old Anson Colliery, it is the result of Les Cawley and Geoff Challinor's years of hard work collecting and restoring engines.

Despite this the award winning museum has flourished and now houses a unique collection of over 250 gas and oil engines, many maintained in running order. Ranging from early Crossley gas engines through to more modern diesels. Engine enthusiasts from all over the world come to visit this fascinating museum.

The Les & Ena Cawley Memorial Building is home to a fantastic display showing the development of the internal combustion engine. The museum has secured many early examples from other major museums eg Science Museums of London, Edinburgh, Birmingham & Bristol. The collection tells the story of the engine from the cannon to the sophisticated, electronically controlled engine of the future.
