Goldsborough Station Gallery 2: c1975 - August 2012
The former Ministry of Food depot at Goldsborough station, looking north-west in 2002. This was a refrigerated cold store where the Ministry of Food could house emergency meat supplies. On completion, the cold store at Goldsborough was provided with a rail connection with two private sidings running either side of the brick monolith, and two reception loop sidings. The wartime storage facility at Goldsborough continued to perform its function during the early years of the ‘cold war’. By 1961 there was seen to be no need to have emergency meat stocks and the sites were rented out as commercial cold stores. It was occupied by Manton Transport Ltd then in 2012 it was bought by Chippindale Foods, who demolished the building and built a new distribution depot.
