About the railway village buildings
Swindon was chosen by Brunel as the location for the railway repair works in the early 1840s, being the mid-point along the new Great Western mainline, between Paddington and Bristol. The village of mainly back-to-back small terrace houses was built to house the many workers, as at the time Swindon was a small market town of 2,500.
The grand building in the foreground began life in the 1850s as a communal lodging house for new workers to the railway works, later becoming a Methodist chapel, museum, and now The Platform community centre. In the background is the three storey Glue Pot pub – the last remaining pub in the village area.
The Chippenham poster also features a piece of GWR and Brunel history.
