1855 'Fatal Accident by Machinery.— On Saturday last, Mr. Taylor, the borough coroner, held an inquest at his court, Bowker’s-row, on the body of James Richardson, a youth aged 19 years, who died on that morning at the Infirmary, from the effects of injuries received at the works of Messrs. Hennings & Entwisle, millwrights, Foundry-street, on Thursday forenoon week. He was passing a planing machine, and must have supposed that the table was reversing the contrary way what it actually was, for before he could get past it his leg was caught between the table and the wall and very seriously hurt. He was removed to Mr. Hampson’s surgery, and subsequently to the Infirmary; where he refused to submit to amputation of the limb until it was too late. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death." ' [1]

Two vertical steam engines by Hennings, Entwisle & Co were installed at Sykes's Edgeley Bleachworks[2]
