Looking north-north-west at Shillingstone (platforms behind) with multiple raised agricultural stores to left, loading gauge, headshunt and Up starting signal – on Down side of track. Sturminster Newton end of passing loop and Down Home signal in the middle distance.

The location of the original goods shed was just to the left of where the photographer was standing. Photo believed to have been taken in 1962/3.
