This modest red brick building housed the Swindon Works’ weighbridge. The weighbridge could check the weights of locomotives, carriages and wagons when they were empty and full.
A dramatic transformation has taken place. In August 2011 the Weighbridge Brewhouse opened its doors as a restaurant, bar and micro-brewery, a vibrant and popular venue which showcases Swindon’s industrial heritage.
