Barrow Hill Roundhouse

Barrow Hill Roundhouse is the last surviving railway roundhouse in the United Kingdom with an operational turntable.



About

Barrow Hill Roundhouse is the last surviving railway roundhouse in the United Kingdom with an operational turntable. Built in 1870, it was threatened with demolition in 1991 when the site was closed by British Rail. It was saved by a group of dedicated volunteers who have transformed it into a unique railway museum and events venue.
