Before coming to Swindon, Mr Monkey had downloaded a route to tour the bits of Swindon built by the Great Western Railway, so he knew where he was going. He inspected the traverser, which used to be able to move engines around the repair shop, then looked at the National Monument Records Office, which used to be the main offices of the GWR.
You can find the route Mr Monkey took at the Swindon Heritage Town Trails website, and read about the National Monuments Records Office at the English Heritage website.
