Introduction

Images from a Historic Building Recording Survey at Wagon Repair Shed, Chaddesden Sidings, Derby 2021

This collection comprises images from a historic building survey recording of the Fireplace Workshop, Wyvern Road, Derby, formerly the Wagon Repair Shed of the Chaddesden Sidings, undertaken by the historic environment team at The Environment Partnership Ltd (TEP) ahead of redevelopment of the site.

The building was constructed in c1873 to serve as a wagon repair shed as part of the important freight marshalling yard of Chaddesden Sidings operated by the Midland Railway. The recorded structure was formerly part of a larger building which accommodated three rail sidings entering from the west. Following the closure of the Sidings in the 1980s the building was taken over for use as a fireplace factory until a fire in 1994 which resulted in the demolition of a large part of the building and consolidation of the remaining structure to form the present building. The interior of the building was modified to enable its use as a fireplace showroom including the blocking of most windows, the insertion of a floor and addition of multiple chimneys and flues. A small extension was also constructed on the east end of the building and later a porch was created.

The building comprised a simple brick-built linear structure utilising locally derived materials. Comparison with locally surviving railway architecture demonstrates that the building has typical characteristics of rail and light industrial architecture of the period, being predominantly utilitarian with decorative effect achieved through the use of repeating segmental headed windows and decorative cornice.
