Lancashire Boilers


The workhorse of the boiler industry during the first part of the 20th Century
was the Lancashire boiler developed and Patented by Sir William Fairbairn.
It was the successor to the Cornish boiler designed by Richard Trevithick.

Lancashire boilers were always set into brickwork and could be used for
either steam or low pressure hot water heating systems.



The website would welcome any photos taken of Lancashire boilers from their heyday. Any application of the boiler/s would be welcome from manufacture, operation, other uses and even when removed and abandoned.
