Trencherfield Mill, Wigan Pier Quarter, Pottery Road, Wigan, Lancashire, WN1 1BA.
The mill engine has been granted an Engineering Heritage Award by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. However, the staff reponsible for the operation and maintenance of the engine were made redundant in 2019 . The Wigan Council website makes the following statement:-
Trencherfield Mill Steam Engine is temporarily closed to the public. We are currently reviewing future options for this site of historical significance and will update this webpage with further details.
We are planning to reopen the steam engine to the public from 2020.
Members of the public can still express an interest in volunteering for when we are open again.
