Accrington Eco Shelter – Northern Rail


  • Accrington Railway Station - New Eco shelter
  • Client Northern Rail
  • Sector transportation


To improve the external waiting facilities for passengers on the platforms of Accrington Railway Station we were asked to install a new waiting shelter with a specific focus on economical design.

We created a beautiful Iroko timber shelter with integrated seating and lighting with solar panels installed on the south facing pitch of the roof, to fully power the shelter creating a completely neutral and environmentally conscious waiting shelter.
