Oldham Camera club have recently visited the Ellenroad Engine house steam museum. Where they were given the opportunity to picture some of the worlds largest working steam mill engines.

 Thanks to volunteers at the museum, they were treated to a detailed tour of the engines in the museum, as well as other machinery in the outdoor area, allowing them to show off their unique photography skills.

The steam house fires up once a month on a Sunday for visitors, where preparations are made the Saturday before, they have disabled facilities with a chair lift reaching the upper floor and a café on the ground floor for drinks and snacks.

The camera club meet most Thursday evenings at the Neon Hub, in Oldham, which runs off Huddersfield between the Miners Arms and the Weavers Arms near the bottom of Ripponden Road.

They are aiming to go out on monthly shoots and their next schedule event is the Tram Museum at Crich Tramway Village on Saturday 30th April.
