About:

Portland Port will open the Grade II Listed mid-19th Century Engine Shed on Monday 29th July as an opportunity for the local community to see inside and find out more about the port and businesses operating within the port premises. The building’s history is interesting in that comprises three locomotive sheds built to serve the Admiralty Incline Railway, transporting stone from the Admiralty Quarries to Portland Harbour for the construction of breakwaters. There will be informative display boards, along with a range of artefacts inside and outside, from dinosaur footprints, a circa 1875 canon and the Harbour Masters RIB. It is an opportunity to have a look around and enjoy the refreshments available from The Friends of the Grove Telephone Box.
