187-/5/10009 Station goods shed

- II

Former Engine shed now warehouse. 1838-40 built for the London to Brighton Railway,
possibly by David Mocatta (1806-82) who designed the original railway buildings for this line.
Classical style. Built of brown brick in Flemish bond with stone dressings. Roof now covered
in C20 pantiles. 15 bays in length. Ends have stone pediments each with red brick oculus,
now bricked in. Dentil cornice. South end has 2 round-headed stone arches with keystones,
now bricked in with one later C19 sash with vertical glazing bars and 1 C20 window. Flanking
pilasters. North end has 3 round-headed arches with keystones of which the central is still
open, those at the side blocked. West side has central round-headed arch with keystone, now
bricked in. 6 windows to south retain round-headed metal casements. To north only the top
halves are visible as the lower part has been bricked in. East side also has central arch bricked
in and round-headed windows with only the top halves now visible. Interior has suspended
late C20 ceiling but original roof structure probably survives above. This building is shown on
maps of 1838-40. Only 2 early railway lines were built in Surrey and this is the only original
building of the London to Brighton railway to survive in Surrey.
