4/68 Daniel Adamson's 20/2/80 Coach House

GV II

Former railway coach house. Circa 1831 for Daniel Adamson. Hammer-dressed sandstone and renewed Welsh Slate roof. Tall, single-storey building with flush quoins. Gabled front has blocked semicircular-arched opening with flush voussoirs and impost bands. Inserted late C20 boarded door with replaced 4-pane sash above. Roof has renewed coped gables and shaped footstones. 2-bay left return has low plinth and 2 similar blind arched openings. Gabled rear has similar blocked openings.

In 1827 Daniel Adamson pioneered a horse-drawn railway coach, Perseverance, which ran between Shildon and Darlington. In 1831, when the Surtess Railway was opeded, Adamson built the coach house to act as both a station and a shed. The building is probably the earliest surviving railway coach house in the world.
