A Corner of Marley Hill Shed

The plan for Marley Hill shed includes presenting it as it was in the 1930s when the Pontop & Jarrow Railway became the Bowes Railway.   As part of this, the concrete floor is to be replaced, and the lineshaft driven machinery (which we installed in the early 1970s) is to be removed.
