Bolton Steam Museum

Join your local Mensans to visit the UK’s largest collection of working steam mill engines.

The Bolton Steam Museum, Bolton, 13:00, Sunday 26th August 2018.

Brought online on only a select few days each year, this staggering collection of restored original steam mill engines will be open to the public over the bank holiday weekend.

Entry is free, so why not come witness a real piece of living history?

We’ll meet by the main entrance, at 13:00. I’ll be holding the Mensa logo on a white piece of paper. An RSVP to james.o@mensanorthwest.com is always much appreciated, if only so I know who to be looking out for.

Latecomers remain very welcome, just contact me in advance at the above address, and I’ll provide my mobile number so I can unite you with the group.

Getting There:

The museum is situated approximately 1.5 miles NW of Bolton town centre on Mornington Road. Look for the large Morrisons Supermarket at the junction of Mornington Road and Chorley Old Road (B6226) and go into the supermarket car-park.

The museum is in the large Victorian cotton warehouse building next to the petrol station.

Parking for the museum is free anywhere on the supermarket site.

Bus numbers 125 and 126 (Stagecoach) and 519 (First Bus) operate from the town centre on Chorley Old Road, stopping just outside the supermarket.

For those with satnav, the post code is BL1 4EU
