The Gateway to Beamish - this steam hammer goes by the name of "Tiny Tim" and I understand that the head and anvil are in store.

Some more details : One of the most prominent and often photographed objects at Beamish is Tiny Tim, the steam hammer frame. This substantial piece of equipment was originally built in 1883 by Glen & Ross of Glasgow for the Darlington Forge. In 1903 it was sold to Baker Bessemer in Rotherham, from where it was purchased for Beamish in 1970/71. It now stands, less the hammer and anvil (both in safe storage), looming over the entrance road to the main car park.
