Also known as Feltham hump yard, this was a large railway marshalling yard designed for the concentration of freight traffic to and from South West London. 

Built along the Waterloo to Reading Line, it was also used for transferring cargo to other marshalling yards in London. The building of the site started in 1916, with the labour of 200 German prisoners of war and it opened in 1918. By 1921 it was said to be the busiest marshalling yard in the country and was particularly important during the Second World War. The marshalling yards closed in 1969.
