The Goods Yard

This is the entrance to the Goods Yard from Ryefield Road. It was apparently unusual for this entrance to be used and very unusual for the gate to be seen left open as seen here.

Copsill Brown and Sons Ltd had a shed in the Goods Yard (as seen here) and were one of the spin off industries that supported the railway. They rented out sacks for the transport of products and were "The Cheapest and the Best".


This is the crane that was in the goods yard and was used for loading and unloading trucks.

In the goods yard were a number of coal depots due to the proximity of the railway for both bringing in the coal and due to this being an area were it was used.
