As prev reports there is little history of the Wagon Repair Ltd more commonly know as Chatsworth Wagon Works.
They were part of a larger company established by Andrew Nelson in 1880. Part of the Glasgow Rolling Stock company Hurst, Nelson and Co, outside of the company’s main works in Motherwell, Scotland there was an administrative office in London and another wagon works in Swansea, Wales.

After around 100 yrs the works closed in the early 80s.
The site has since become a sort of holiday camp for explorers, graffiti artists & generally the local riff raff.
