Goods shed at Swithland Sidings, Leicestershire

Goods shed at Swithland Sidings, Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Rothley map.
L2115. Photographed in February 1978, this derelict Great Central relic is the small goods shed at Swithland Sidings. The yard was situated close to the southern tip of Swithland Reservoir, an unlikely location perhaps, but one near to the Mountsorrel Railway branch line - a route that served a concrete works and numerous quarries.
