We went on the final open day of 2019 when many engines are running. Just so much to see, and as an engineer I loved the desmodromic Sunbeam engine and the paddle streamer engine as static displays, and the 15 or 20 engines that were running, and huffing puffing and banging. Cafe has drinks and snacks.

Been to the measuem a few times now but not for about 5 years or so I went today with my dad the amount that has changed was amazing they have a lot more running internal combustion engines the steam hall is now massive with around 10 running steam engines on steam days the staff/ vaulteeres were lovely kind and very very passionate and enthusiastic nothing was to much trouble very highly recommended to anyone with interest in historic machinery or for anyone wanting an interesting day out

We only found this little gem by accident and it is a pleasure to spend time with such passionate and dedicated people It is well worth a visit if you like industrial history, The demonstrations are great and we could easily have stayed all day A small and clean area serves drinks and confectionery etc The only negative was we nearly missed the entrance we will go back again

The 2019 1000 engine Rally was cancelled but we decided to still head over and have a weekend visiting other items in the area. On Saturday lunchtime we arrived at The Anson Engine Museum,. It usually only opens Fridays and Sundays plus the odd special event.Its all run by volunteers and funded by donations. The Engines on display are fantastic, some real rarities with many running, Steam Oil,Petrol Paraffin & Diesel. nice little cafe with tea and cakes. Check opening times before visiting But if you are interested in engines and machinery the place is a MUST to visit.there is a small "Cinema" showing old film footage but Unfortunately We did not have time to visit that. Although I missed the club Tent and stuff for sale at the 1000 engines,I actually enjoyed the museum more than looking round the field. I cannot recommend it highly enough. All the people were friendly and the Engine guys had plenty of time to chat and answer questions

What a fantastic find! Travelling on the Macclesfield Canal and just happened to stop. We spent over 3 hours and could have easily stayed longer. Will certainly come back when engines are in steam. The knowledge and enthusiasm of all the volunteers is impressive. There is everything from the first steam engines to the Deltic Diesel and loads more. Hundreds of engines plus a working forge (though sadly not today!) and a Bodgers workshop complete with working pole lathes. Can't recommend highly enough
