AmcoGiffen reroofing works completed at Knaresborough Station
Committed to preserving the heritage of the railway – and all associated infrastructure – AmcoGiffen have completed works on the Grade II listed Knaresborough Station situated on the Harrogate line, between Leeds and York and near the picturesque four-arched stone viaduct, across the River Nidd.
Originally built in 1865, our team have sympathetically re-tiled and glazed the station roof, working with the existing tenants to keep their inconvenience to as little time as possible and with no disruption to the operational line.
We worked closely with the local conservation authority, Network Rail and stakeholders to ensure we maintained the station aesthetics, even sourcing the specialist ‘Welsh Blue Slate’ from Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda to match the station roof’s original tiling.
With all works now finished, we’re delighted to view the end result.
