Now Huddersfield Railway Station’s water tower is to open its doors to the wider public.
It’s one of many buildings in and around Huddersfield that are to open their doors.
The Grade I listed tower is thought to have originally been built between 1885 and 1890 to hold 2,345 gallons of water.
A spokesman for Heritage Open Days said: “Visitors can see close up the restoration of this 1870s Water Tower, once used to supply steam locomotives at Huddersfield Station.
“The work to restore the building and convert it into a base for the Association of Community Rail Partnerships has been done with a low carbon footprint in mind, demonstrated by the displays inside.
“It’s an excellent demonstration of how old disused buildings can be brought back into use.”
The Tower will open on Sunday, September 13 from 10am-4pm as part of Heritage Open Days events across the town.
