Circa 1870s, built for the Staveley Coal and Iron Company. Iron-framed, clad in brick with renewed part-glazed roof (originally lead sheeting) to roundhouse, Welsh slate to ancillary buildings. Plan completely intact. The roundhouse (in fact rectangular on plan) shelters the turntable with 22 tracks (or 'stalls'), 9 with service pits. Within the S and W corners are the fitters' workshop and office. Attached to the E corner is the general office, to the N corner the sand-dryer (in a tower over a kiln); to the W corner a watertank above a general workshop. Detached to the SW are the mess and lamp shed, the machine shop and, at the entrance a later (possibly 1940s) sander unit (to enable the locomotives to grip the rails). All ancillary buildings of brick with simple detailing (windows under cambered arches, some with original frames with small panes) except the lamp shed which is timber. The machine shop has a prominent louvred roof. Principal roundhouse with H-section iron or steel uprights, the valley gutters issuing into attached downpipes. 6 x 5 unequal bays. Cobbled floor. Extractor fan fittings (the fans removed). Turntable renewed C1931 by Cowans, Sheldon & Co Ltd, Carlisle). The building functioned both as a workshop and a turning place for locomotives serving the local coal mines and iron works. It is (1990) the last operational roundhouse in Britain and is notable for retaining its full complement of associated buildings.
