SCRCA Note: Alterations observed during a site visit on October 14th, 2020

Created on 14 Nov 2020.

Network Rail have carried out work on the embankment and the drainage in this area and, when photographed in October 2020, it looked significantly different to a Google Earth image from 2016.

SCRCA Knowledge Base for Appleby Station Tank House

Created on 6 Sep 2020.

The original tank house was demolished circa 1968.

The current structure is a modern replacement that is similar in design to the original, but slightly smaller (e.g. there is just one window in the front wall of the base, rather than two).

A commemorative plaque fixed to the front wall states that the current structure was:
