Evening Star

If you are routinely dragged around the shops by your partner Swindon just off the M4 may have something for you in addition to the usual coffee shops with comfortable sofas and free WiFi. The Swindon outlet centre is housed in converted halls once used to build GWR steam engines. The history is a long and successful one, by the 1930s it was the largest manufacturer of steam locomotives in the world.

These days even the food hall has a steam locomotive alongside the tables and chairs filling the air with the smell of oil, which for some at least a welcome alternative to the smell of fast food.

Next to the outlet centre you will find a Steam Museum which houses a couple of examples of locomotives built at the factory including the Evening Star which was the last locomotive to roll out of the sheds in 1960 and was I think marked for conservation even before it was finished.

It offered the opportunity for a B&W HDR picture or two.
