Bath - Railway Station

As part of a major retail scheme adjacent to Bath Spa’s historic railway station, Steelway were employed to recreate the long lost Porte Cochere which once graced the “down-side” station building. The challenge was to provide an authentic solution as far as was possible. From a 1920’s photograph, together with site evidence, and combined with our historic knowledge of designs of the period, we were able to determine the dimensions of its projection and recreate the original appearance and details to a very exacting standard. The contract included the complete re-creation which took on board the replica riveted structure, patent glazing using glazing bars which emulated the 100 year old designs of Henry Hope & Sons together with all necessary timber and cast iron components. The project received part grant funding from Railway Heritage Trust.
