Mr Monkey inspected an engine built in Bury around 1867 and later used to pump water from a well on Lord Rothschild's estate at Dancer's End. The engine has two cylinders each with its own beam and crank and a common flywheel, and is a design often used to power mills in the Lancashire and Yorkshire textile industry. Mr Monkey admired its compact design and cheery maroon colour.
