Transformer for Penwortham

Local residents turned out in numbers to view a very special delivery to the Penwortham's sub-station.

At 276 tons the National Grid's latest purchase is one of the heaviest loads ever to be carried on a British road.

The Transformer was too heavy to be transported  all the way from Alstoms in Stafford by road, so it was taken to Ellesmere Port and brought to Preston by sea.
