This building is an accurate replica of one that stood on the platform at Uffculme in Devon.
The Friends chose this style as it typifies the general purpose storage building used on countless GWR stations.
It not only provides a perfect workshop for the Friends but also greatly adds to the atmosphere of the bay platform where it resides.
Although, the basic frame, cladding and cast iron guttering were new, several features such as the sliding door and its runners were recovered from other GWR sites.|
Even the stove pipe is a recovered boiler tube from a GWR Mogul !!
