This is Cocksedges steam powered turnery, that was in Halstead it was powered by a single cylinder steam engine. Steam was provided by a Cornish boiler, on which they burnt waste wood, lighting was provided by gas lamps. Products made were coconut shy balls, rolling pins, chair legs ect. It was interesting to watch all the line shafting and belts whizzing round. There were about 6 turners working, the works closed in the late 50s.
