W.H.Coward & Co vertical engine - stock code 6672

A single cylinder vertical engine by W.H.Coward & Co of Bath - a modest sized engine dating, we think, from the early twentieth century. Cast iron frame with double guide bar crosshead arrangement, the overhung disc crank runs through to an outrigger bearing originally probably mounted on a brick emplacement, latterly the whole engine has been installed on a fabricated steel stand. The flywheel is not the original, but of a size and type appropriate for the engine and period.
