Abstract

This is the culmination of a study of the goods sheds designed by George Townsend Andrews for the York and North Midland Railway in the mid-1840s. The sheds have the potential to be of significant value to the archaeological world, particularly in an industrial context. A number of surviving examples, of varying levels of preservation, have been looked at to the standards of English Heritage Level 1 buildings survey. Their significance as archaeological resources, and as a part of the industrial and railway heritage, has been explained, and their potential for adaptive reuse assessed. The data collected in the survey and investigation has been presented to allow further study of these buildings in archaeological, buildings conservation, and railway historical contexts.
