Big 4 Company LNER
1947 Directions The shed is situated at Consett junction, in the fork of the Blackhill-Consett and Blackhill-Bishop Auckland and Durham lines. The yard is visible from both of these lines.
Turn right outside Consett Station into Delves Lane, and continue to the cross roads in the centre of the town. Turn left here into Front Street, continue for about three-quarters of a mile, crossing an ironworks level-crossing en route. Cross the bridge over several L.N.E. and ironworks lines. A few yards after the railway bridge a path will be seen on the left-hand side leading through some allotments. Continue along this path for about 10 yards, from where a boarded crossing over four lines leads to the shed.
Walking time 30 minutes.
