Description

WITHIEL
SW 96 SE
7/150 Swindon Villa
-
II

Railway carriage, now house. Brought on site circa 1935, and said to be a late C19
carriage from the Swindon works.
The carriage has a corrugated iron roof with gable ends set over the curved carriage
roof, but otherwise all window and door openings are intact with all the original
fittings. Some windows to the front have been blocked, but all original apertures
remain and there are no new openings. There are doors and ventilators. Internally
the windows retain straps for raising and lowering, with original hinges and locks to
the doors. There is a small single storey addition to the rear of the carriage,
which has protected the rear. All internal partitions remain. Said to have been
originally painted brown and cream. Probably a GWR carriage, with 6 or 8 wheels and
a bogey at each end.
