Fowler is a well-known British engineering company that specialized in the design and manufacturing of steam engines and agricultural machinery. They were particularly renowned for their traction engines, road locomotives, and steam-powered agricultural equipment.

They were commonly used in various applications, including agriculture, construction, and transportation. They were known for their robust construction, reliability, and efficiency. Fowler also manufactured steam-powered cranes that were used for lifting and moving heavy loads in construction sites, harbours, and industrial settings.

The Fowler 10nhp Crane Engine No. 17106 was built in 1928 and spent most of its working life with Marstons Road Services in Liverpool hauling castings, dynamos and ship's gear around Great Britain. The engine gained the name 'Duke of York' in 1952 and was always known as 'the big engine' during its working life. The engine underwent major repairs in the mid 1990s and is a regular performer at the Great Dorset Steam Fair.
