 Designed by a Swedish engineer by the name of Llungstrom, this revolutionary electrical generator was built by Brush of Loughborough, Leicestershire in 1914. The turbine works by steam being injected onto a series of turbine blades inside the centre of the turbine - the blades, turned by the steam, turn two generators which then produce electricity for public usage. The turbine was in use at Loughborough Power Station until 1990, and is now on outdoor display at the Abbey Pumping Station, Leicester
