From Woodchurch Museum:-
It was accessioned by us in 1993 when Geoff Loynes, our founder, donated it. Its accession number is WDCWM0096. We understand Geoff acquired it a short time earlier from a ?museum? (which we believe to have been a private collection).

It was formerly used as a laboratory engine in a College for teaching students engineering and thermodynamics. Unfortunately there is no evidence of which College used it.


Original documentation from Woodchurch museum gave the serial number as 21275. The correct serial is actually 21276

Conservation/ Maintenance History
Initial Assessment

The engine is good overall condition with minimal wear.

It has now been stripped for inspection and apart from the missing magneto and associated components it is on excellent order.

A decision has been taken to perform a full restoration as the it has been poorly painted and lined by a previous owner.
