Full description

(Manor Farm on Ordnance Survey map).
(S1) in file states that the Covering Yard is a copy of 'Windsor railway station' (meaning the former Royal station adjacent to Windsor and Eton Central, now a museum).
Royal Estates refused to give out any information about the building; this is not one of those proposed for listing even before the 1987 decree that buildings owned by the Queen would not be listed. However, assuming the building is not an entire modern replica (which seems improbable) it is clearly a structure of engineering significance.
Location provided by West Norfolk District Council.
E. Rose (NLA), 14 July 1998.
