1947 Directions The shed is on the west side of the line north of the station and Stafford Road shed. The yard is not visible from the line.

Follow the same routes from the stations as for Stafford Road shed but continue along Stafford Road past the entrance to that shed. Turn first left past the canal bridge along Jones Road. This road ends by a railway viaduct, and there is a gate on the right hand side by one of the viaduct pillars. The left hand cinder path from this gate leads to the shed. Walking time from the stations 30 minutes. A trolley bus service operates between Princes Square, and the end of Jones Road.

Note. Bushbury Lane is the second turning on the right of Stafford Road after Jones Road.
