....and might not make much sense at the moment!

Please keep popping back, though. It is a work in progress and being added to all the time.

(ABOVE): This map shows the site of The Pullman Works as it appeared in its zenith. Sadly, the site was demolished wholesale in October 2008, to be replaced with an unsightly triangle of gravel with a mobile phone mast in the centre of it! The layout of the surrounding trackwork and railway infrastructure has changed very little since it was built. The Cliftonville Curve sweeps round to the top right. Note the stairway from Highcroft Villas, which is still intact in the present day.

There is a whole chapter elsewhere on this website, in which the location was explored and documented immediately prior to its demise and demolition.

(ABOVE): This map shows the Combined Engineering Works on the site of the old Steam Sheds. It is interesting to note the bridge over New England Road. While the structure was widened to accept more track work, no lines actually pass over the original bridge: two buildings and the northwesterly tip of the carpark are directly in the path of any route that would have crossed the bridge. In the top right corner of the map, the bridge to the Lower Goods Yard can still be seen still intact at the present day (2005) Ordinance Survey Publications

ABOVE: This diagram shows the usage of the New England Quarter site detailed immediately prior to closure and redevelopment of the site in the early part of 2002. The Fyffe’s Bananas Warehouse has become John’s Camping, Martha’s Barn Furniture and Clifford’s Auto Factors.

This map is not to any kind of scale and is meant only to represent the layout and usage of the site components. C.C.K., Brewers Decorating Supplies, the Tribunal Courts & Geo Richardson’s Scrap Merchants all came about with the widening and redevelopment of New England Street in 1962.

In the present day (2021), CCK Church, Brewers, Boston Street, Geo E Richardson and the Tribunal Courts buildings remain unaltered, although the Tribunal Courts are now headquarters for the mental health charity Mind.

Everything to the left (south) of CCK has now gone and been redeveloped.
