Countdown to completion of the building work

If you go down to the Goods Shed today you're sure of a big surprise. 

In fact, if you went down to the Shed in mid-October it would have been good to be disguised with a boiler suit and some sharp secateurs.

There were a lot of "bears" gathered around the site as the Council, the Tetbury in Bloom Society and the Rail Land volunteers cleared up the parkland and did a bit of pruning before winter sets in.

Shed's interior is shaping up

THE SCAFFOLDING has now gone from  the main hall, giving us a first inkling of how great the performance area is going to be. The internal walls have been insulated and clad and the roof trusses have been cleaned and scrubbed to show off the wood to its best. 

The even bigger picture

Bringing the Shed back to life as a centre for art, entertainment, functions and social events is a centrepiece of the Trust's vision but it is by no means all of it.

When the current work on the Goods Shed is complete, TRLRT will continue to improve and enhance the former rail lands: 

We're fully behind the aspiration of a bridle path running all the way from Tetbury to Kemble along the old railway path. The path and right of way to the Trouble House should be in place by autumn 2016, with bike racks next to the Goods Shed.
