"The engine is a 20 horsepower (15 kW) condensing steam engine with an overhead beam supported by an 'A'-frame.

It was built by the Butterley Company of Ripley, Derbyshire.

It has a single cylinder of 35 inches (89 cm) bore and 56 inches (1.42 m) stroke.

The flywheel is 18 feet 6 inches (5.64 m) in diameter.

The engine ran at up to 30 rpm"

"The engine is gear-coupled to a single scoop wheel in an adjacent compartment.

There are 40 paddles around the circumference of the 22-foot (6.71 m) wheel, which could lift a maximum of 7,500 imperial gallons (34,000 l) of water per minute through an 8-foot (2.44 m) lift.

The annual effort varied between 1,093,000 long tons (1,111,000 t) tons of water lifted, and 3,690,000 long tons (3,749,000 t).

Typically the engine was operated for around 180 days a year and an engine man was permanently retained, living on the site"

Cannon displayed under the tower. An explanatory text stated :- 

"The Pinchbeck Cannon was found on Frieston Shore along with two cannon balls. It is thought to have been in use during the Crimean War (1854-56).

It Is mounted on a cast iron ship's carriage and was made by George Jackson of Fishtoft, who worked for Howden & Son of Boston. The year 1848 is stamped on the carriage.

It was bought by Thomas Plowright who died in Kimberley in South Africa (see monument in south aisle) and eventually given to L F M Wayet, son of the Vicar of Pinchbeck.

Its length is 41", and Its caliber is 2 & 5/8"; its condition is such that It could still probably fire a 3Ib cannon ball approximately 1200 yards"
