The New Fitting Shop (565)
The New Fitting Shop was one of the smaller anonymous buildings scattered around Pyestock.
The structure stood in the compound around Cells 1 & 2, thus suggesting
it had some association with those cells, which is why it shares its construction and decommissioning dates.

Its name also suggested a support function for one of the Cells. But its bare interior gave little away and it
was not mentioned in the literature.
engines [installed in the Plant House] were operated and
looked after by our fitters who were based in the New Fitting Shop. The North end of the
New Fitting Shop housed machinery, the South end workbenches for the fitters.
The offices were for the PTO in charge of them and the leading Charge Hand for
the workshop, I think." - Eddie Kirkman
The New Fitting Shop has been included here as representative of the smaller, support buildings at Pyestock.
