Demolished Building


1852 workshop. These were some of the earliest structures on the Greenesfield site, constructed following the transition of use from a passenger station into a repairing workshop. The building contained decorative cast-ironwork in the form of columns terminating at rood level with simple fretted arched brackets. The ironwork is likely to have been produced by the Gateshead firm of Hawks Crawshay, which supplied much of the ribbing for the High Level Bridge.The north fa├žade was sandstone ashlar with buttresses and heavy rusticated surrounds to doors and windows.
