1947 Directions The shed is on the north side of the line east of Swansea East Dock Station (closed). This line is now closed to passenger traffic.

Turn left outside Swansea High Street Station along High Street. Continue into Castle Street, Wind Street, and turn left into Quay Parade. Continue over the river bridge, and past St. Thomas Station, into Fabian Street. Continue into Port Tennant Road, and turn right into a cinder path between two blocks of houses (almost opposite Middleton Street). This leads to the shed. Walking time 30 minutes.

A bus service, labelled Port Tennant, operates from the town past the shed entrance. The “United Welsh” Swansea to Neath via Jersey Marine service passes this shed and Danygraig.
