An iconic Grade-II listed building in High Wycombe that was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel could have an extension built onto it as Wycombe District Council reveals plans to overhaul it.

The council bought the Brunel engine shed, next to High Wycombe railway station, last year.

Now, after outlining ambitious plans to completely revamp it, early plans have been submitted.

While there is not yet much specific detail about the regeneration, the council wants to add a two-storey side extension to the shed with a mezzanine floor.

The shed would also be turned into a mixture of offices, shops and a cafe, with bin and cycle stores.

The building is one of the first things you see when you arrive at High Wycombe railway station - but has been unused and neglected for years.

In November 2018, the Bucks Free Press revealed the district council had decided to press on with a compulsory purchase order to take over the shed, which was owned by Chiltern Railways.

The council bought the shed in November 2019 - and at the time, Cllr Steve Broadbent, who is in charge of economic regeneration at the council, said the building could become the “focal point” of a new station square.

The iconic building was built by famous Victorian railway engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel in the nineteenth century.

It was given a small makeover to make it look more attractive by High Wycombe artist Dan Wilson.
