Anson Engine Museum

View the days out leaflet for Anson Engine Museum

This unusual and fascinating museum used to be one of the best kept secrets among Cheshire's many attractions. Over the past few years it has undergone some major changes and is now recognised as one of the Country's leading specialist museums. Situated just south of Manchester in the leafy countryside of Higher Poynton, the museum is on the site of the old Anson Colliery. It is the result of Les Cawley and Geoff Challinor's years of hard work collecting and restoring engines. This award winning museum houses a unique collection of over 200 gas and oil engines, many maintained in running order. Ranging from early Crossley gas engines through to more modern diesels. Engine enthusiasts from all over the world come to visit this fascinating museum. The new Les & Ena Cawley Memorial Building will be the home of a fantastic display showing the development of the internal combustion engine. The museum has secured many early examples from other major museums eg Science Museums of London, Edinburgh, Birmingham & Bristol.
