The tower taken in today's winter sunshine
The subject of "Restoration Man", Channel 4, 9pm Thursday, 16th February
Mark & Pat Rand, have completed the restoration and conversion of their 1876, grade II listed Water Tower. The project to convert and restore the only surviving water tower on the Settle-Carlisle line has been recorded by Channel 4's, soon to be broadcast, "Restoration Man". But for the full story, visit the Blog: settlestationwatertower.blogspot.com. Now restored to ‘as built’ by the Midland Railway, Mark says "the tower looks as though it could be a new-build, not built in 1876! No re-pointing and minimal pressure washing only in parts". A job well done - they deserve their black book and glass of lemonade on the roof!
