Grace's Guide is the leading source of historical information on industry and
manufacturing in Britain. This web publication contains 148,124 pages of
information and 233,665 images on early companies, their products and the
people who designed and built them.
An excellent industrial museum. A highlight is the Basford Beam Engine, one of a pair of engines built in 1858 by R. and W. Hawthorn. This and other engines can be seen running on steaming days. More information here.
