Shuttleworth Steam


Clayton Shuttleworth Stationary Steam Engine F-898 

 8 hp Single Cylinder  The Clayton and Shuttleworth 1893 Steam Engine is easily one of the more iconic engines created by the esteemed and almost historical engineering company in Lincolnshire in England. Even since they produced their first steam engine back in 1845, they became a major manufacturer of similar machines in the country (the threshing machine, which they first built during the later 1840s, was another one of their iconic products). From then until the late 1930s, Clayton and Shuttleworth was a world renowned company that even exported their products in countries such as Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. The Clayton and Shuttleworth 1893 Steam Engine was probably the last steam engines the company produced—making it an amazing collector’s item and a valuable treasure in the world of engineering. The 1893 model is an eight horsepower, single cylinder steam engine, easily one of the strongest during that time.

The Clayton and Shuttleworth company also manufactured tractors during the early 1900s until its end during the 1930s. They also made oil engines and a crawler tractor powered by gas-kerosene engine, as well as parts for various aircrafts. Sadly, the company died during the Great Depression. Of course, the company’s legacy remains until today—and the engineering wonder that is the Clayton and Shuttleworth 1893 Steam Engine is one of their legacies.


I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
