Description :
A steam pumping engine built by Hathorn Davey of Leeds in 1893 and formerly used at Marine Colliery. It was installed there when the colliery was completed, in a chamber beneath the winding engine on the down cast shaft.

It is built entirely of cast iron, and has been thoroughly painted since re-erection. (02)
