Bridge Road Carriage Sheds
Bridge Road Carriage Sheds
The new carriage sheds at Holt known as Bridge Road Carriage Sheds, have been built to provide covered storage for our historic rolling stock both restored and un-restored. The North Norfolk coast is not the ideal location to store old vehicles and the sheds will protect them from damage caused by sun and rain.

There are two sheds, each having two sidings. The shorter, western, shed is 63m/207' long and the longer, eastern, shed is 100m/308' long. These have the capacity to store 14 carriages or 11 carriages plus the Quadart set. The sidings in the shed and in the yard have a combined length of 540m/1770'

The cost of the scheme was 419,000 and was constructed with the help of a substantial grant of 308,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The railway was awarded the grant in April 2006, construction began in October 2006 and was substantially complete by May 2007. The external works including a lineside path from Holt Station were completed in January 2008.
