Spruce Up for Keighley Water Column

Whilst all the major work was taking place further up the Valley and there were no steam engines needing their thirst quenched down at Keighley, a small band of volunteers gathered at Keighley to give the water column on Platform 3 a well earned spruce up .

Although on a Midland branchline, the column has greater connections with the old GNR line to Bradford & Halifax. It was rescued by a group of members in the early 1980s from the National Coal Board’s Manvers Main Colliery near the Sheffield to Swinton railway line and appears similar in design to those used by the GNR/LNER.
