No 19 Shop, and No 20 Shop (north
bay) Old N Shop

Smiths turning shop, now machine shop, c1842, by D Gooch and I K Brunel. Coursed
squared rubble from Box tunnel, corrugated sheet roof. The west facade is of two
storeys and bays separated by pilasters, and with horizontal wooden boarding
between the windows. The windows mostly have their original glazing mullions and
transom below. 2-light with mullions above, each divided into vertical panes and
opening with central pivot.
Internally, the space is now full height, but evidence of the first floor remains
in a partition. The north end of the block has the original wooden roof trusses.
The remainder has later steel replacements. Apparently the best preserved of
the original buildings opened 2nd January 1843. One of an important group of
Victorian industrial buildings at the GWR works.
