Private house. The conversion was the subject of two one-hour episodes of TV's Restoration Man. This gets shown all over the world and we have been privileged to welcome people who have seen the programme in their home countries. During 2018 we...more

Thank you for those kind words. We are, we hope, about to embark on some building work to the rear of the tower so have had to close off the grounds to the public but we are delighted to see how many people are interested...More
We were filming the railway for our YouTube channel Campervan Tales and I realised that I had seen the water tower previously being converted on a TV programme. We didn't realise we were allowed to wander around the garden, but what a great my idea...More
Got off the train at Settle and walked passed the old Water Tower and thought I recognise this, I’ve seen it being renovated on Grand designs or some such. A great pleasure to see it in the flesh and to look around the garden. I...More
This old water tower has lovingly been restored into a private house(2011). Located on the Settle to Carlisle railway line the very proud owners share their garden with the public by providing a short walk with boards illustrating the history of the Tower. The short...More

We are sorry that you missed the illustrated information boards around the tower which explain what it all was/is. There are also lots of photographs and explanations alongside the visitors book. Two examples of the signs are among the photographs that others have been kind...More
Lovely of the owners of this restored gem to share a little bit of their private paradise with passers by. Especially chuffed as I had enjoyed watching the programme that documented their renovation project and this happened to be one of my favourite episodes.
On a trip to Settle we decided to go and see the train station (an odd thing to do perhaps). On our way up the slope to the station we noticed the Settle station Water tower, which we had seen being renovated on TV and...More
