Restored Crank Stationary Engine
built by Dockfield Engine Works in Shipley

Paul Belbrow from Northallerton got in touch late 2006 and asked if I knew anything about the origins of the engine he was restoring because he had an idea it was made on Dockfield Road in Shipley. I pointed him in the direction of the Industrial Museum in Bradford, the Council and a local Model Engineering Society Chairman of my acquaintance. He did the rest from there. This is his feedback with a wonderful image of the engine.

Hope this enlightens you to what a stationary engine looks like.
