2/10000 Former Swindon Works
Transport Garage, Williton
Machinery stores. 1899. Steel frame clad with corrugated iron sheeting. One nave remains from two original arched naves supported by steel stanchions similar in type to a station train shed of an earlier period. Curved steel members rest on steel beams to carry the roof which has a light frame and curved ties. Originally clad in heavy guage old Swindon pattern sheet with iron corrugations at 184mm centres, rolled at the Swindon works, now clad in plastic-coated steel sheeting. Glazed rooflights. A remarkably well preserved and very early example of a steel-framed all-metal building. Timber doors to each end.
Formerly one of an important group of Victorian industrial buildings at the GWR works, dismantled and re-erected at Williton in 1992.
This building was removed from its previous site in Swindon.
