We were filming the railway for our YouTube channel Campervan Tales and I realised that I had seen the water tower previously being converted on a TV programme. We didn't realise we were allowed to wander around the garden, but what a great my idea...More

The tower has been very imaginatively converted into a private home, and the owner has developed the land immediately around it to provide a short walk with boards telling the history of the site. Would be wonderful to see the internal conversion, it looked fantastic!...More
