GWR Route: Banbury to Wolverhampton
Widney Manor Station: gwrwm430c
Close up of image 'gwrwm430' showing the goods shed in
detail and the cattle pens and head shunt for the sidings. The appearance of
the goods shed with its steel beam supporting the opening would indicate that
the structure post dates the opening of the line under Brunel's influence.
Inside the entrance can be seen the landing platform projecting out with steps
on either side for staff to gain access. One of the two doors used to secure
the shed is seen opened flush with the gable wall and it is assumed that the
other is open at ninety degrees and hidden behind the post carrying the loading
gauge. In the foreground can be seen the fencing which penned the cattle for
loading access to the cattle wagon being provided from the far pen.
