Model of a Lancashire boiler

This is a model of a Lancashire boiler made by Penman of Glasgow. The boiler has an economizer, developed by Greens of Keighley in Yorkshire, which preheated the boiler feed water by passing it through pipes set in the hot gases passing to the chimney.

The model is built to a scale of 1:12. It is complete with all mountings and is set in brickwork.

This type of boiler was patented in 1844 by William Fairbairn and John Hetherington of Manchester.
