SO8217 : Last remnants of the Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Company works

Last remnants of the Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Company works
Last remnants of the Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Company works
This is all that remains of the Gloucester Carriage & Wagon Company's 1937 works. The company was in operation for 126 years and built all manner of railway rolling stock. At its peak 2400 people were employed here. Much of the 11 acre site has now become a rather depressing retail park, complete with litter - strewn car park and a boarded up cinema, and these buildings are the only tangible reminder of a bygone age. Well, that and the fact that the road junction near here is known as "Wagon Works Junction".
