Pagoda

This remarkable style of building was pioneered by the GWR in the early 1900's for use at its more rural Halts.

Recovered from Allscott Sidings near Shrewsbury, this example was transported in one piece to its new location on the Bay Platform at Kidderminster.

Often seen in pairs, this remarkable 'Chinese style' hut was used for any number of tasks of general storage for railway and public goods alike.

All the cladding is being replaced with special skills required to reproduce the complex roof line and an ornate cresting has been added along the ridge line to restore the original look.
