The Belliss & Morcom – Steam Engine Driven 3-Phase 415 Volts – 50Hz Alternator, built in 1916 in Birmingham, England. Spent most of its life generating electricity for lighting at Warboys, London Brick Company works. This twin cylinder engine was a general purpose model, designed for rugged reliable worldwide service in many applications, it has now been retired and is a sculpture in the centre of the Wildlife Haven. We hope to use it to power the new centre south of the River Nene!
Mary the Mud Maid – Inspired by the ‘Sleeping Mud-Maid’ in the lost gardens of Helligan in Cornwall. Mary was created on a rainy day in May 2009. Thanks to the hard work and vision shown by a team from Perkins Engines Company Limited, she was transformed into an incredible sculpture. Mary’s rich ivy vegetation dress also provides an important habitat for ournative species.
