I am looking at:

The Bricklayers Arms Depot

map
Southwark, London,
The extensive railway yards were located from the Bricklayers Arms pub on the Old Kent Road to the bottom of Catlin Street. The South Eastern Railways premier goods depot, Bricklayers Arms, or the 'Brick', was a major depot and a haven of activity for vehicles, wagons, engine sheds, breakdown cranes, horses, cattle, and many railway lines can still be found around the vicinity. The gable-roofed sheds and other buildings received severe damage at the hands of the Luftwaffe during the Blitz. The depot closed in 1962 except for The Old Southern Railway Stables and Forge which are the only buildings to survive demolition.
