The London Museum of Water and Steam has published its own factsheet for teachers – highlighting “five things you need to know” about James Watt.
The factsheet is part of a series of useful links and downloads available on the Museum’s website.
The Museum says: “This engine is the oldest known working waterworks beam engine in the world.”
The Museum itself is a bit of a star. It is said to have been used as a location for episodes of TV shows such as “EastEnders”, “The Bill” and even “Doctor Who”.
