Protec system waterproofs Settle Station Water Tower

The BBA and FM approved Protec system from Polyroof were chosen to waterproof the roof of the historic, Grade II listed Settle Station Water Tower.

Constructed in 1876 the building is the only remaining water tower on the Settle – Carlisle line. The water tank at Settle was capable of holding a massive 43,000 gallons of water which is the equivalent to roughly 150 tonnes; the station was used to replenish the water stores of steam locomotives travelling north and southbound on the world famous line.

The restoration project converted the building into a residential property and was documented by the Channel 4 programme The Restoration Man. 

Protec was applied directly onto the failing GRP roof surface, which allowed for a quick refurbishment of the roof and minimum disruption. With proven durability ratings of over 25 years and supported by Polyroof's trusted Accredited System Guarantee, the client had total peace of mind that the roof will be protected for decades to come.
