    THE GOODSYARD'S HERITAGE

    Bishopsgate Goodsyard opened as a station in 1840, and from the 1880s operated as a bustling terminal for goods coming into London. Much of the original Goodsyard was destroyed in a massive fire in 1964, after which it fell into disuse, and more of the site has been demolished in subsequent years. However, many of the original Victorian features of...
