Overview

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 shall be having building work done in the grounds which will therefore be a building site, not open to the public. However, if you have come half way round the world to see the place do please come and ring the doorbell on the off chance.

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

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

The tower has been very imaginatively converted into a private home, and the owner has developed the land immediately around it to provide a short walk with boards telling the history of the site. Would be wonderful to see the internal conversion, it looked fantastic!...More

Nice to step back in time and see the addition to the Settle train station. It's not a long trip or so, but it's a nice building/collection. Would be great if there was someone to explain what it all was/isMore

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.
