Trencherfield Mill Engine

Trencherfield Mill Engine

Trencherfield Mill Steam Engine is one of the largest and finest working examples of its type. Built over 100 years ago, this mammoth metal powerhouse was regarded as a feat of industrial engineering. Churning out a massive 2,500 horsepower to feed the ever hungry machinery of Trencherfield Mill, it played an instrumental role in Wigan’s industrial development.

With the help of a successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid and restoration project, the engine has been restored to its former glory.

Visitors to Trencherfield Mill and the Wigan Pier Quarter are now able to awe at this giant’s immense size and power, but more importantly, experience it working as it did all those years ago - full steam ahead!

Trencherfield Mill Steam Engine is temporarily closed to the public.

They are currently reviewing future options for this site of historical significance and will update this webpage with further details.

It is planning to reopen the steam engine to the public later in 2019.
