1827 ALMOND Grasshopper Beam Engine

This very rare and early small ‘grasshopper’ type beam engine is believed to have been constructed by J.P. Almond of North Shields in 1827.

The engine was acquired in the 1870’s by Day & Co., Southampton, and fitted to a slipway winching system at Cowes, I.O.W. where it ran until the mid 1990’s (on compressed air), making it the last working grasshopper engine in the world?
