Old Lancashire boiler covered in lagging material, probably used as a steam accumulator or water tank.

Cracking set of picc, Terry.

I remember Newtown Boiler Works. At St Helens Hospital we had three old vertical Cochran steam biolers - Newtown Boilers used to carry out the repairs. The site is now completely redeveloped.
