Tank repainted in 1959
I met a man in Settle yesterday who remembers the tank being re-painted grey in 1959. He cannot remember what colour it had been but from photographs it was probably already grey. At that time he worked in the coal yard by the water tower. He says that a British Railways (or possibly British Road Services?) lorry that did railway deliveries was garaged inside the tower in 1959.
