L1890. Somewhat unusual in appearance due to the prominent brick chimneys, this corrugated metal structure at Ruddington was built as a site office for Logan & Hemingway, the firm responsible for building Contract No.1 of the Last Main Line (Annesley to Leake). Note the sleepers of the contractor's temporary railway on the right of the photograph.
