Please see attached photos of a warehouse I used to see regularly when going to Network Rail meetings at their Marshgate Depot in Doncaster. The building can be seen from the Friars Gate Bridge public road leading over the River Don, the warehouse backs on to Grey Friars Road.
I just think it oozes decrepit charm and abounds with modelling potential. So many materials, textures, colours etc. And right for any railway, canal etc model.
I am not sure what the ‘thing’ in the river is – looks like the bottom half of a boat(?)
Perhaps some natives from Doncaster could give further enlightenment?
The sunken "thing" is a lighter - an unpowered barge used for moving coal or spoil. The building is superb. Does anyone know any more history?
