EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph captures the bustling activity of the Goods Shed at West Lancashire Station in Preston, as documented by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway in 1927. The image showcases two railway goods vans parked outside the Cantrell and Cochrane depot, with the imposing goods shed looming in the background. The station, also known as Fishergate Hill Station, held significant importance in the region's transportation network. Although it was closed to passenger services in 1900, it continued to serve as a vital hub for goods traffic until its eventual closure in 1965. The sheer size and scale of the goods shed are evident in the photograph, reflecting the immense volume of freight that passed through the facility. The Cantrell and Cochrane depot, located adjacent to the goods shed, would have been a hive of activity as well. Workers would have loaded and unloaded goods from the railway vans, ensuring the smooth distribution of essential supplies and commodities throughout the area. The image offers a glimpse into the industrial past of Preston, a time when the railways played a crucial role in connecting communities and driving economic growth. Sadly, the station was demolished, and the site now stands as Colman Court. However, this photograph serves as an enduring reminder of the rich railway heritage that once thrived in this part of Preston.
