A new energy-dispersive powder diffraction facility has been constructed on the wiggler beam line of the synchrotron radiation source (SRS) at the Science and Engineering Research Council's Daresbury Laboratory. This paper describes the facility, in particular the beam definition apparatus (front end), the diffractometer (back end), and the counting and control electronics. Some recent results are presented including a high pressure study of La2CuO4.
