View Full Version : Archived: Dinting Engine Shed, Glossop October 2010

This readers, is Dinting engine shed - a nine acre site, overgrown and abandoned.

In the 1970's and 1980's this place was full of steam train enthusiasts who came flocking to Glossop to see some big trains. Today, the track is lifted, the engines gone and much of the railway stuff moved up to Keighley, West Yorkshire

Inside is trashed and tagged. Rusting lights hang from the ceiling. Outside, trees overhang the building

Here is a small tank engine outside. I didn't take it. For reference, Nunlow was built in 1938 by Hudswell Clarke & Co Ltd of Leeds, for the cement works of G & T Earle Ltd at Hope in Derbyshire.
It was purchased by the Society in 1969 and used for many years at the Dinting Railway Centre hauling brake-van trips for visitors.
Recently overhauled and now fully operational, Nunlow is on display at Ingrow Loco.

And outside the shed today.

Following a footpath, I could see a station type building through the trees. It looked ruined. I checked it out. It was quite good. I don't know why I am writing in short sentences. The blue is a train nearby.

This looked like it was some sort of covered waiting area, in a station building type setting.

Fireplace. Just in case you are very, very, very simple and don't know.

A rather relaxing wander, and the only regret was the new boarding on the level crossing mans house nearby. Still, worthy of a last station shot before getting back in the motor.
