GV II

Heavy engineering repair shed, now commercial storage premises. Mid C19, altered C20. For the Leeds and Thirsk Railway Company. Brick, corrugated iron roof. Single-storey; semi-annular plan. Bays defined bay pilasters which rise into dentilled eaves cornice with similar band dividing upper and lower portions of bays. Central infill, not of special interest, masks former segmental-arched doorways with fanlights, now blocked. 4 keyed, segmental-arched windows to each bay, the 2 lower windows tall and now blocked; ends have 4 windows at each level. 2-bay rectangular projection on N side in same style. Continuous skylights to both roof pitches. INTERIOR: brick piers, corbelled at top and linked by decorative brick bands, support tracking system for overhead travelling crane. Cast-iron roof trusses with vertical and diagonal struts and tension braces. A site plan of 1853 shows this building, although its exact date of construction is unknown. Engineering repair shed rather than a locomotive building, as has been formerly assumed. (Fitzgerald, R: Railway Complex, Wellington Street.
