Description Prestongrange Colliery View of winding engine

Date 1977

Collection John R Hume

Catalogue Number SC 517032

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content Prestongrange Mining Museum, East Lothian This museum was established by East Lothian County Council in the mid 1970s with as its centrepiece the only surviving Cornish pumping engine in Scotland which had drained seams worked by Prestongrange Colliery. This view shows the steam winding engine from Newcraighall Colliery, Musselburgh, partly re-erected at the museum. This is approximately in the correct position in relation to one of the shafts of the Prestongrange colliery. This engine was reassembled and its foundations built by men working on the Community Programme of the Manpower Services Commission, which ended before the exercise could be completed.
