We are really interested in any history of this railway and site which is directly opposite our house in South Pelaw….. a point in the direction of any information would be massively appreciated Regards Chris Reply ↓ John Donnelly Post authorFebruary 21, 2016 at 8:29 pm Chris, The building you refer to is the NCB Shed which was part of the Coke Works at Stella Gill a few photos of which can be found on this page: http://southpelawjunction.co.uk/wp/?page_id=556 John Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
