Description

Freestanding cast-concrete water tower, c.1960, on a circular plan comprising eight reinforced concrete piers with supporting ring having cast-concrete drum/basin over on corbels with moulded plinth and coping.

Appraisal

This water tower, which is apparently still in use, is of considerable technical or engineering significance, and represents an example of cast-concrete construction. The water tower forms an imposing landmark in the locality.
