Derby

This long, thin shed is adjacent to the A52 dual carriageway, alongside the remains of Chaddesden yard. It is now a fireplace showroom, but was formerly a wagon repair shop. Two pairs of rails can be seen in the gravel at the far end from this shot. Apparently, hump shunting in 'Chaddo' was subject to heavy impacts - as was a nearby junction on the ring road!
