Rothwell water tower

They are fond of their water towers in Northamptonshire. Every town seems to have one standing above it as you approach by road.

This is Rothwell's tower, complete with bungalows clustered around its skirts.

Geograph comments: "The most prominent site for some miles around, probably only still standing as a useful income generator for Anglian Water - a mobile phone mast." But they didn't have such a nice day for it.

Hi all,

The rothwell water tower is a large elevated drinking water storage container constructed to hold a water supply at a height sufficient to pressurize a water distribution system. It also serves as a reservoir to help with water needs during peak usage times. Thanks a lot....
