( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Ford Escape EcoBoost is small all-wheel-drive Crossover that is called the Ford Kuga in Europe. Last year we tested the Ford Escape up our traditional off-road trail in the snow and quickly got it stuck and almost rolled it into a creek. The trail and the conditions were obviously extreme for a vehicle that most people will only use occasionally on a dirt road. As soon as the snow started falling in Colorado we decided to try it again on a more fitting off-road trail. In another accurate,fun and informative TFLcar Colorado off-road review, we re-test the 2014 Ford Escape with the EcoBoost engine in the snow and mud to se how it will drive when the road gets steep and rough.

Subscribe to our newsletter at http://www.goldmoney.com/goldresearch. Paul Harris, publisher of the Colombia Gold Letter, talks to GoldMoney's Dominic Frisby about the state of the mining sector in Colombia. Though Colombia has been a gold producer for centuries, its mining technology has fallen behind the times due to the country's internal problems. It was only in 2002, when new president Álvaro Uribe Vélez assured democratic security, that a gold rush broke out leading to the discovery of 75-80 million ounces over the last 15 years. Discussing the conflicts between mining companies and environmental protection groups, Harris explains that some modern mining techniques are still poorly understood by people in the communities and local and national government. Therefore the mining companies need to better educate about their projects in order to combat fears from the public. Dominic points out that for many Latin American countries, natural resources make up a large part of exports, which is why mining plays a big socio-economic role. These resources can be very advantageous for the countries' economic development. They agree that the Colombian exploration sector has bottomed out and is ready to move higher again. In his report, Harris examines about 50-60 companies. He points out that Colombia is blessed with a great geographical location and recommends visiting the gold museum in Bogota, which displays an impressive selection of the remaining Inca gold. This podcast was recorded on 22 August 2012.

To us interesting content comes from the unknown. In Marble, CO there is a stone quarry that has unearthed marble that has graced the Lincoln Memorial, the Tomb of the Unknowns, the Equitable Building (among other skyscrapers in NYC), and so much more. The quarry has enjoyed a renaissance since its acquisition in 2004 by Polycor, a Canadian-based dimension stone company. In spite of significant transportation costs, this high-quality stone is now exported in large quantities to Europe and Asia for transformation and use throughout the world, as well as being sold into the US market.

Description 1.Wittenoom,Western Australia Wittenoom is a ghost town 1,106 kilometres (687 mi) north-north-east of Perth in the Hamersley Range in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The area around Wittenoom was mainly pastoral until the 1930s when mining began in the area. By 1939, major mining had begun in Yampire Gorge, which was subsequently closed in 1943 when mining began in Wittenoom Gorge. In 1947 a company town was built, and by the 1950s it was Pilbara's largest town. During the 1950s and early 1960s Wittenoom was Australia's only supplier of blue asbestos. The town was shut down in 1966 due to unprofitability and growing health concerns from asbestos mining in the area. Today, three residents still live in the town, which receives no government services. In December 2006, the Government of Western Australia announced that the town's official status would be removed, and in June 2007, Jon Ford, the Minister for Regional Development, announced that the townsite had officially been degazetted. The town's name was removed from official maps and road signs and the Shire of Ashburton is able to close roads that lead to contaminated areas. The Wittenoom steering committee met in April 2013 to finalise closure of the town, limit access to the area and raise awareness of the risks. Details of how that would be achieved were to be determined but it would likely necessitate removing the town's remaining residents, converting freehold land to crown land, demolishing houses and closing or rerouting roads. By 2015 six residents remained; in 2016 the number had reduced to three. 2.Kantubek Uzbekistan Kantubek (Russian: Кантубек) was a town on Vozrozhdeniya Island (Uzbekistan) in the Aral Sea. The town is still found on maps, but is uninhabited and lies in ruins today. Kantubek used to have a population of approximately 1,500, and housed scientists and employees of the Soviet Union's top-secret Aralsk-7 biological weapons research and test site. Brian Hayes, a biochemical engineer with the United States Department of Defense's Threat Reduction Agency, led an expedition in the spring and summer of 2002 to neutralize what was believed to be the world's largest anthrax dumping grounds. His team of 113 people neutralized between 100 and 200 tonnes of anthrax over a three-month period. The cost of the cleanup operation was approximately US$5,000,000. 3.Love Canal,Niagara falls Love Canal is a neighborhood within Niagara Falls, New York. It is the site of a pollution disaster that extensively affected the health of hundreds of its residents, necessitating a Superfund cleanup operation. Originally intended in the 1890s as a planned model community, Love Canal grew and then slowly declined before being bought out in the 1940s by the Hooker Company, which dumped industrial waste in the never completed canal. In the late 1970s, Love Canal received national attention for the public health problem originating from the disposal of 22,000 barrels of toxic waste. Numerous families were displaced from their houses, which had been contaminated with chemicals and toxic waste. Many of the families suffered several health issues with common problems of high red blood cell counts and indications of leukemia. The entire neighborhood has since been demolished and a Superfund cleanup was only wrapped up in 2004. New York State Health Department Commissioner David Axelrod calls the Love Canal incident a "national symbol of a failure to exercise a sense of concern for future generations". The Love Canal incident was especially significant as a situation where the inhabitants "overflowed into the wastes instead of the other way around. 4,Picher, Oklahoma Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The state collaborated on mitigation and remediation measures, but a 1996 study found that 34% of the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning due to these environmental effects, which could result in lifelong neurological problems. Eventually the EPA and the state of Oklahoma agreed to a mandatory evacuation and buyout of the entire township. The similarly contaminated satellite towns of Treece, Kansas and Cardin, Oklahoma were included in the Tar Creek Superfund site.

Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

Mining Capital's Alastair Ford tells Proactive Investors pressure on the gold price remains on the down side: ''We've seen the price dip to $1180/oz in the very recent past and I think we'll see a return to those levels, if not lower, in the coming weeks and months''. Ford discusses Centamin PLC (LON:CEY), one of London’s biggest gold miners, which has cut its annual production target after reporting a 25% drop in quarterly output from its flagship Sukari mine in Egypt. SolGold PLC (LON:SOLG) gets a mention - chief executive Nick Mather has said a new mineral resource estimate (MRE) for its Alpala copper-gold asset in northern Ecuador could have a material impact on the scale of the project. Also discussed are ECR Minerals PLC (LON:ECR), Greatland Gold Plc (LON:GGP) and Rockfire Resources Plc (LON:ROCK).

While very few leaders were beheaded in the course of this one, it changed the lives of more people more dramatically than any of the political revolutions we've discussed. So, why did the Industrial Revolution happen around 1750 in the United Kingdom? Coal. Easily accessible coal, it turns out. All this, plus you'll finally learn the difference between James Watt and Thomas Newcomen, and will never again be caught telling people that your blender has a 900 Newcomen motor.

Check out the most amazing trucks in the world! From the largest to the most heavy, this top 10 list of craziest and coolest trucks is absolutely awesome! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most AMAZING Military Vehicles!" video here: https://youtu.be/GI1pQS3fbgc Watch our "SCIFI Weapons That Actually EXIST!" video here: https://youtu.be/REi8y34Y8Bc Watch our "AMAZING Places Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/xdWeyQ86cPM #9 Hitachi EH5000AC-3 The EH5000AC-3 is Hitachi’s largest rigid-frame hauler in the history of the company’s existence. They use a unique hauler technology that has lasted them through the ages. In addition to the timeless technique, they’ve added a brand new, high-efficiency Advanced IGBT AC-Drive system. Hitachi is one of the most eco-friendly companies that produce hauling trucks. They can raise profits by lowering fuel and maintenance costs. They are able to spend less, to make more, and get more done in the process. The machine itself weighs about 550 tons, but has a payload of 325 tons. With a 2,850 hp, the Hitachi EH5000AC-3 knows how to get the most out of its fuel. It also has safety measures built in. A Slip/Slide Control System will add traction in slippery conditions, such a rainstorm or when ice is on the roads. Not to mention, this makes sharp turns much easier as well. A pitch control system will allow this truck to drive over rough roads with ease. Meaning, the driver won’t lose any of its load when off-road. With LCDs, heating/cooling controls, independent cabs, monitoring cameras, and much more, it is likely this machine is the most advanced and well thought out truck in the world. #8 BelAZ 75710 As the make suggests, the BelAZ is a manufacturer based in Belarus. As of 2016, it is the world's largest, highest payload capacity haul truck. The BelAz 75710 is equipped with a two-axle setup yet the wheels are a four to an axle! Because of this, it also needs eight large 59/80R63 tires. Four-wheel drive and four-wheel hydraulic steering is seen on this truck. A funny addition considering its turning radius is only 20 meters. It can be loaded to a capacity of nearly 500 short tons and still drive as usual. Though empty, it still weighs over 350 tons. It is 66 feet long, 26 feet tall, and 32 feet wide. That’s about three times as tall as a Giraffe. Rather than using the power of one single engine, it is powered by two 65-litre 16-cylinder diesel engines, each of these engines having 2,300 horsepower. Since the fuel consumption is 198 g/kWh per engine, there is an option to use only one engine when carrying smaller loads. At its best, it can travel 40 miles per hour. BelAz believes in this 2013 truck so much, that they have invested $644 million in increasing its total production capacity. #7 Caterpillar 797F The Caterpillar 797F is Caterpillar's largest, highest payload capacity haul truck! It appears to be every little boy’s dream to drive one of these when he grows up as the 797 series is the perfect Tonka truck model! The Caterpillar 797F was first mentioned to the public at MINExpo International in September, 2008. This guy was the successor to the 797B. The 797F has a higher payload capacity and a more powerful, more efficient engine than its predecessor. Because of these increases, Caterpillar could meet the needs of mine operators' so they were able to increase the efficiency of their work. They also saved money by reducing the costs considering the payload was much higher, meaning less trips, less fuel, less time. The payload capacity? 400 short tons! The horsepower? A gross 4,000! The top speed? 42 miles per hour! This truck is fully geared with a rear axle mounted, computer controlled, seven speed planetary transmissions that is equipped with an integral lock-up torque converter. #6 Bucyrus MT 6300AC You have to see this military-style machine to believe it! Built for mining, it is a sight to behold and a wondrous machine unlike any other! The Bucyrus MT6300AC is an off road, double-axle, ultra class, diesel/AC electric powertrain haul truck. It was designed and manufactured by Bucyrus International Inc. in America. The MT6300AC is the company’s biggest, highest payload capacity haul truck, and closing in on the highest in the world at 400 short tons. Even fully-loaded, this hauler can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. On February 19, 2010, the Terex Unit Rig MT6300AC was re-branded which created the Bucyrus MT6300AC. This took place when Bucyrus International Inc. took over the mining equipment area of Terex Corporation. You may know Bucyrus makes as Caterpillar's UnitRigs as in 2011, Caterpillar took over a good part of the Bucyrus trucks.

Her struggles with the disease and her frustrated son, brings to life the intriguing possibilities that someone with Alzheimer may be aware of what's around them and might be somehow, trying to communicate". It is a story about "Abuse", "Fashion design", "Alzheimer's, but most of all it is a story about the power of Love." Written By Jorgea Hernando. Review: "I saw this movie in a Private Screening done by Production. It has a great mixture of feelings. Laughter from one of the characters that kept my emotions "balanced." Tears from both happiness and sadness from the struggles of a mother suffering by domestic violence, a bitter son, and Alzheimer's disease. Suspense, through out a couple of pieces in the movie - with unexpected endings. An opportunity to change the point of view about Alzheimer's patients' "world." Anyone involved in the patient care industry, anyone with a family member suffering from this disease, anyone that is affecting others of being affected by alcoholism and/or domestic violence ... cannot and should not miss this film. The music goes very well with the "up's and downs" in the audience' emotions. The art department did an awesome job - making each scene detailed and according to the script/time line. The picture quality is unbelievable."

Hemp has untapped market as biofuel "We're looking at this as an energy crop," Ford said. His company, which is planning to build energy plants to process biofuels, has looked at sweet sorghum but doesn't think the yield would be profitable enough. Instead, he has turned to hybrid sugar beets, which will give him sugars that can be turned into ethanol, plastics and flavorings. But the advantages from hemp would be exponentially greater, Ford said, because hemp oil from seeds could be used for aviation fuel and biodiesel. Other parts of the plant — such as the "hurds" from the woody middle of the stalk — could be used for cellulosic ethanol. Ford said the biomass also could be blended with Kentucky's high-sulfur coal to "green" it up. "We're working with coal companies right now on a strategy for post-mining land use to add value to the land and create jobs," Ford said. He said he is working on potential ways to use reclaimed mine land to produce the crops that could then be blended with the coal to create a "value-added" product for power plants that need to reduce their emissions without sacrificing energy-producing capability. On Feb. 11, Ford spoke at a pro-hemp rally in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort, the same day that the state Senate Agriculture Committee passed Senate Bill 50 to create a framework to license Kentucky farmers to grow hemp if federal restrictions are lifted. Ford said he is encouraged by the support of Kentucky's federal legislators, including U.S. Sens. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, and Reps. John Yarmuth and Thomas Massie, for either passing a bill distinguishing hemp from marijuana or granting a waiver to let Kentucky test the viability of hemp. Ford planned to testify at the Kentucky House Agriculture and Small Business hearing Wednesday morning on the hemp bill, but the prospects are uncertain. Ford, whose background is in economic development and Republican politics, said he hopes to bring a new aspect to the discussion Wednesday. The market for hemp fiber and hemp foods has generated a lot of discussion, Ford said, but "the biggest opportunities are transportation fuel and power generation." His company is developing integrated energy parks that could use coal, natural gas, solar energy and bioenergy together, co-firing coal and biomass. "I'm for coal, for mining more coal," Ford said. "This is not about picking and choosing. ... It's for integrating natural resources for doing things better. This is about helping coal in Eastern Kentucky. We can be even more competitive by blending coal and biomass, creating value. I'm an energy guy." The coal companies see it as potential vertical integration, he said: They could grow the biomass on land that has been mined, then blend it with their coal. All energy companies are looking for ways to meet federally mandated renewable-fuel standards that require increasing amounts of ethanol and other biofuels to reduce the amount of imported petroleum and greenhouse gas emissions.

We "accidentally" discovered Loretta Lynn's Kitchen Restaurant/Gift Shop and Dude Ranch while on a short road trip from Florida to Tennessee. Our plans were to stay two nights in Chattanooga, two nights in Nashville, and two nights in Memphis -- and this was not part of our itinerary, so we did not have enough time to thoroughly explore or tour all the interesting historical buildings and museums. Hopefully we will be able to return to this unique place full of history, tucked in the rolling hills of Tennessee about 75 miles west of Nashville. And it was truly an honor to recently attend a Loretta Lynn concert at Peabody Auditorium (9/13/13), but unfortunately Loretta had been involved in a mishap in her home and was suffering from broken ribs, so she was not quite up to par -- however, at age 81, she did a FANTASTIC job entertaining a full auditorium of fans! The down-to-earth star is only the second country artist to be named as a recipient of the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Tennessee Ernie Ford was the first. Loretta is also known as "The Coal Miner's Daughter," "The First Lady of Country Music," "The Decca Doll," and "The Queen of Country Music." Loretta Lynn, born 4/14/32, married Oliver Lynn, commonly known as "Doolittle" or "Mooney" (for running moonshine), on 1/10/48 after meeting and courting for a month. Mooney was 21 and Loretta was 15. In an effort to break free of the coal mining industry, the couple moved to the logging community of Custer, Washington. The Lynns had three children by the time Loretta was 19 and gave birth to their fourth child, Cissie by age 20. The Lynns had 6 children altogether. Loretta became a grandmother at age 29 (1961), three years before her twins were born. Loretta has 21 grandchildren and their ages range from 52 to 11, born between 1961 to 2002. She is now a great-great grandmother. Loretta has survived two of her six children. Jack Benny who was Loretta's second child and eldest son, died at age 34 on July 22, 1984 while trying to ford the Duck River at the family's ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Loretta's eldest child, daughter Betty Sue, died at age 64 from emphysema on July 29, 2013 near Loretta's ranch in Hurricane Mills. The 6500 acre Dude Ranch offers not only a playground, swimming pool, paddle boats and canoeing, but also cabin rentals and a fully equipped RV Park. According to Loretta's daughter Peggy Lynn, "Hurricane Mills is a real Mayberry. Picture this historic little town with a Grist Mill built in the 1800's, the site of Civil War battles and Indians and a beautiful antebellum home. You can bring your family and camp beside a freezing cold spring-fed creek, where you can swim or catch rainbow trout. You can follow miles of trails on mountain bikes, motorcycles or horseback, or go canoeing and kayaking in the river. During the day you can get homemade biscuits and sausage. In the evenings on weekends it's a concert venue with the likes of Merle Haggard, Charlie Daniels, and Johnny Lee." Loretta Lynn still lives in a house right behind the plantation home, and you may catch a glimpse of her if you're fortunate. There are several museums, and historical tours, and also rodeos and the annual Grand National Motorcross. Loretta performs on Memorial weekend, 4th of July weekend, and Labor Day, and she is scheduled to host a Gospel Music Festival in late September.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Review: The Jeep Grand Cherokee has long occupied an awkward space in the market, finding itself somewhere between mainstream and premium SUVs. It’s not quite on the same level as anything from Audi, BMW or even Infiniti, but it certainly feels slightly more upmarket than the likes of the Ford Explorer or Nissan Pathfinder. That identity crisis has a noticeable impact on the Grand Cherokee’s pricing, with enough boxes on the order sheet to push it well into premium territory. That’s particularly true for the Canadian market, with its $44,195 starting price coming just shy of the slightly smaller 2018 Audi Q5. Regardless of its price tag, the Grand Cherokee has a definite advantage over any of its adversaries out on the trail. With a pedigree that predates most other SUVs on the market, the Grand Cherokee doesn’t have quite the same trailblazing bravado as the Jeep Wrangler, but it’s not far off. And no version encapsulates that go-anywhere ability better than the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, the roughest, toughest trim in what’s a fairly long list of them.

In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers.

Living standards for indigenous people on par with "third world" countries, buttressed by a large population of unemployed young men in a "warrior cohort", and easy-to-target economic infrastructure, all mean Canada has conditions for a potential indigenous "insurgency". That's according to a new report penned by a former Canadian military officer for the MacDonald Laurier Institute, a think-tank supported by corporate executives. "For many Aboriginal people in Canada, but especially for First Nations women and children, life on-reserve is dreary, dark and dangerous," wrote Douglas Bland in the report, Canada and the first Nations: Cooperation or Conflict? "Social fractionalisation significantly increases the risk of social conflict. The phenomenon provides motives for an insurgency," read the report, issued in May. Bland refused interview requests from Al Jazeera, but conclusions from the Queen's University professor emeritus and 30-year military veteran have worried the Canadian establishment, especially in light of indigenous-led protests associated with the Idle No More movement, and Canada's increasing dependence on natural resource extraction. 'Ongoing injustice' "The Canadian right-wing establishment is seizing on this to justify its own agenda of stricter controls and the continued criminalisation of native people who defend their rights," Taiaiake Alfred, chair of the centre for indigenous governance at the University of Victoria, and one of Canada's most influential aboriginal intellectuals, told Al Jazeera. "The positive elements of Canadian society - progressive values and social justice - are founded on the ongoing injustice of land theft and murder of indigenous people." In November, Paul Martin, Canada's former prime minister and a business tycoon, echoed Alfred's comments, albeit in a softer tone. "We have never admitted to ourselves that we were, and still are, a colonial power," he said. One of the world's most developed countries, Canada is home to about 1.2 million indigenous people out of a population of 34.5 million. The indigenous population is rising faster than other demographic groups, despite drastically higher rates of poverty, incarceration and substance abuse. If indigenous Canadians were ranked as a country according to the United Nations Human Development Index, which measures living standards and life expectancy, they would have social outcomes comparable to residents of Kazakhstan and Albania. Across Canada's prairies, the heartland of the country's agricultural industry and a centre for mining, about 42 percent of the indigenous population will be under the age of 30 by 2016, more than twice the youth rate in the non-indigenous community. "The fact that Canada's natural wealth flows unfairly from Aboriginal lands and peoples to non-Aboriginal Canadians is a long-standing and justifiable grievance," the report said. A large number of poorly educated, unemployed young men - a "warrior cohort", as Bland put it - provide fertile recruits for militant groups, the report says. Using a formula first developed by researchers at Oxford University, Bland argued that the "feasibility" of unrest, rather than just root causes, could determine outcomes. Most of Canada's resource industries, including mines, dams and oil facilities, are located on land claimed by indigenous people - and attacking such facilities is easily feasible, the report said. Comprising about four percent of the population, indigenous people make up 23 percent of Canada's prisoners, a 43 percent increase during the five years prior to 2013, according to a government report released in March. There is near universal acceptance that the status quo is unacceptable, but across Canada's coffee shops, factories - and even within the MacDonald Laurier Institute - there is no consensus on the causes. Other solutions In a separate report for the institute, former government senior economic adviser Brian Lee Crowley and professor Kevin Coates paint an optimistic picture, far removed from fears over blockades, sabotage or a full-blown uprising. "Blockades may be news," they wrote, "but the new joint ventures, long-term training programmes and successful indigenous businesses are what will reshape our common future." They argue that indigenous communities are ready to hit a "sweet spot" as a series of Supreme Court decisions on long-standing treaties will give them a larger stake - environmental and financial - in natural resource development. Other intellectuals, however, say support for mines, dams and other megaprojects with large environmental costs won't help get people out of poverty, and are contrary to indigenous support for sustainability.

Tandem compound textile mill engine at Queen Street Mill Textile Museum in Burnley, Lancashire, UK. "Peace" as this engine is affectionately named, is but one of a number of magnificent engines long retired, but now preserved, throughout the UK. Originally, this engine was named Prudence after the first engineers wife. The engine was renamed after the first world war, in memory of fallen co-workers who died fighting in France. Their sacrifice devastated families and working communities everywhere. This largely complete textile museum is well worth a visit and should you go, you will be hosted by friendly, highly knowledgeable staff. It is simply amazing to learn all the processes involved in spinning and weaving cotton; plan on spending at least half a day here! The steam engine alone is well worth the visit, but there is so much more to see & do. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia; Queen Street Mill is in Harle Syke, a suburb to the north-east of Burnley, Lancashire. It was built in 1894 for The Queen Street Manufacturing Company. It closed on 12 March 1982 and was mothballed. It was taken over by Burnley Borough Council who maintained it as a museum, and then in the 1990s passed to Lancashire Museums and is unique as the worlds only surviving steam driven weaving shed. It received an Engineering Heritage Award in November 2010. It is open for visitors and still does weaving demonstrations. Architecture The mill was of four storey construction, with a large single storey weaving shed. After the fire in 1918 it was remodelled into a single storey building, space being taken from the weaving sheds for a new preparation area. On closure in 1982 it was reconfigured by Burnley Council, the weaving shed was partitioned, about a third being used for rentable industrial units, and a similar area being used for visitor facilities. The 37 metres (121 ft) chimney and the 60m X 25m lodge lay to the south. The boiler house, the engine house and chimney are Scheduled Ancient Monuments. As originally built the weaving shed was about 170 metres (560 ft)by 160 metres (520 ft), with the typical north facing roof lights (windows) giving natural light, the shed housed 990 looms. On the Queen Street side was the boiler room and engine house, and the four storey warehouse. The ground floor was the weft department, the first floor was offices, the cloth warehouse and temporary storage beams, the second floor was the winding and beaming department for beaming and drawing in, and the third floor was the preparation department for tape sizing. After the fire the ground floor of the frontage was rebuilt and used for winding and preparation, 100 looms were removed and part of the Harrison Street end of the shed became the new warehouse. Rowland Kippax who worked there however reported "there were now 1040 looms, there were nine tacklers looking after 130 looms each". Power Steam is raised by two Lancashire boilers built by Tinker, Shenton & Co, Hyde. The first was installed in 1894, and the second in 1901, when a 120 tube Greens Economiser was fitted. Now feed water is supplied by a Weir pump fitted in 1956, Both boilers were stoked manually, though secondhand Proctor automatic stokers were fitted in 1962. Boiler No.1 had the Shovel type and the coking type were fitted to No.2 Today the manually stoked 1901 boiler is the only one used.Coal was obtained locally from Bank Hall Pit but now with pollution controls being stricter it has to be imported. At its peak it burnt 6 tonnes a day, but now uses only 10 tonnes a month. The steam raised to 100 psi in the boiler house, drives the original tandem compound horizontal stationary steam engine. The high pressure cylinder (HP) is 16 inches (41 cm) and the low pressure (LP) 32 inches (81 cm). It uses Corliss valves. The engine drives a 14 feet (4.3 m) flywheel running at 68 rpm. The 500 horsepower (370 kW) engine was built and installed by William Roberts of Nelson in 1895. It has never been moved from this location and runs perfectly true. Power is taken from the crankshaft by a series of directly driven line shafts. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music: Invincible Force, bought from jewelbeat.com and used under licence.
