are you a fan of old engines - how about getting your hands on a ruston?
Browns Family Golf Course was created by the golfing legend, Henry Cotton. a world famous golfer of his day. Power was needed on site to serve the club house and water the greens, and so two Ruston machines were installed, which are still there to this day, untouched for over 50 years.
A grant was found to help make the building housing the machinery watertight once again but here is little or no money to restore the machinery itself. Men in Sheds was approached to see if we could help. So we managed to get a group of retired engineers to come along to see if this is a project that would interest them, and we are pleased to say that it most certainly does!
We are looking for willing engineering type volunteers prepared to get oil under their fingernails to help restore these beauties. If you are interested, please get in touch through our Contact page
A recent report from ITV News give a bit more detail on the project.
