The death of Market Harborough's Victorian goods shed


When it became clear that the Victorian goods shed at Market Harborough station did not figure in the plans to straighten the line and build a new car park, I went to photograph it. You can see it above.

At least another favourite feature on that side of the line has survived so far.
