BBH - Orpheus
The somewhat sad remains of the Bristol-Siddeley "Orpheus" jet engine from Bluebird K7, having spent nearly 35 years underwater. The casing has acted as a sacrificial anode, and the loss of material by corrosion has protected the rest of the vessel. On display in the Bluebird Annex of the Ruskin Museum, Coniston.
