Engine Sheds, Stack and Turntable, St Blazey Road, St. Blaise - Cornwall (UA)

Locomotive turntable associated with adjacent roundhouse is deteriorating through lack of maintenance having been taken out of service in 2002. The roundhouse building is in light industrial use. A community interest group has been formed to develop a project to restore the site and bring it into more sympathetic uses. A Coastal Communities Fund grant was awarded in 2016 to develop the project.
