The 19th-century Grade I listed warehouse, on Liverpool Road, Manchester forms part of the Liverpool Road railway station complex. It was built in five months between April and September 1830, “almost certainly [to the designs of] the Liverpool architect Thomas Haigh”. Its construction has been attributed to George Stephenson and his son Robert.
The processing of goods within the warehouse was originally a manual operation but “steam-powered hoists [were] installed within a year as the manual system could not cope with the volume of goods”.
The restoration of the warehouse was undertaken in 1992–1996 by the Building Design Partnership. The warehouse and the adjacent station building now form part of the Manchester Science and Industry Museum.
