Barrow Hill Roundhouse

UK»England»Derbyshire»Barrow Hill Roundhouse

Barrow Hill Roundhouse: Barrow Hill and its preserved Roundhouse is a treasure trove for railway enthusiasts. After becoming a listed building and following extensive renovation, the entire engine roundhouse, depot, yard, sidings and associated railway lines were all re-opened between 1989 and 1998 and are now home to many preserved British railway locomotives. No trip to the Roundhouse would be complete without a ride on the train, and train rides are available pulled by either a steam or diesel locomotive from Roundhouse Halt, a purpose built platform. Trains travel around the depot and up the Springwell branch.
