British Industrial History
J. H. Tattersall
From Graces Guide
- J H Tattersall was a consulting engineer based in Preston, Lancashire. Buckley and Taylor of Oldham built a number of large beam engines to Tattersall's design. A photo of one of these, an 1100 HP engine at the CWS Daisyfield Mill in Bury, shows 'J. H. Tattersall Engineer Preston' cast into the main beam, but it was in fact built by Buckley & Taylor (1903). Tattersall also design the mill's boilers, which were built by Taylor of Marsden
- c.1898 J H Tattersall designed a particularly impressive 2400 HP beam engine for Nile Mill, Hollinwood. This was a double engine, of the triple expansion type, each beam being driven by a high pressure, intermediate, and low pressure cylinder with diameters of 32", 38" and 52"
