The Lake District
Andy Thornton Ltd have designed, manufactured and installed an impressive new entrance canopy at the historic Haverthwaite railway station, in the picturesque Leven valley at the southern end of Lake Windermere. We are delighted to have played such an important role in the development and restoration of the station, which dates back to 1869.
It is home to a collection of classic carriage stock, and steam and diesel locomotives. The station now features a canopy comprising of cast aluminium railway style columns, mild steel sections and bespoke teardrop friezes all finished in a black powder coated finish. The roof comprises 6mm toughened glass panels. The project took three months to complete from start to finish, with the canopy in place for the start of the 2011 tourist season.
