Trains in Our Garden

Photographs of our water tower are rare.   After all, water towers were once commonplace and hardly worth a second look.

Thanks though to Chris Meynell who works at DCC concepts next door for the picture below which is another image of the tower as its useful life was coming to an end.   It is a screen-grab from a piece of 8mm film dating from 1967.   The film shows brief clips of the sights to be seen on the S&C, taken from a train.   Settle station appears briefly and so too the water tower:

It shows a couple of passenger coaches on one of the two tracks of the station goods sidings.   The stone building to the left of the SETTLE sign was the goods yard's weigh house.
