2/10000 Former Swindon Works
Transport Garage, Williton

- II

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.
