Railway Transport Site
The western engine shed was enlarged between 1857 and 1865 but apparently retained much of the external walls of the early 1850s structure. It was constructed of squared coursed local sandstone with arch-headed windows and openings surrounded by rusticated frames. The shed was further extended before 1894. Extensive alterations took place in 1963-64.The building recorded by NCAS in 2003 was almost entirely of mid-late 20th century date with fragments of the 1850s structure.
