1947 Directions The shed is on the east side of the Bow-Poplar line south of Bow Station. The yard is visible from the line.

Turn left outside Bromley (by Bow) L.P.T.B. Station along St. Leonards Street. Turn right into Devas Street, and at the end of this street left into Brickfields Road. The shed entrance is a gate on the right hand side by the end of this road. Walking time 10 minutes.

This area was heavily blitzed during the war, and some of the streets are not too easy to identify, but the coal stage is visible from St. Leonards Street.
