Wilco Krul:
The water tower near Conington is a ‘symbol of remembrance’. This water tower is also depicted on a memorial plaque, which is located next to the water tower. The text on this memorial plaque reads:

GLATTON AIR BASE
1944     1945

The WATER TOWER that stands before you is
the only remaining significant structure
of the Glatton Air Base.

Construction of this base (Station 130) was
completed by the 809th Engineer Battalion
(Aviation) of the United States Army in late
1943. It was home for the 457th Bomb Group (H)
of the U.S. Army Eighth Air Force in 1944-45.

Today this tower stands alone, like a silent
sentinel, providing a visual landmark for
those 457th Airmen who did not return from
that last mission.

It is a symbol of remembrance for all Airmen
who fought in WWII for the cause of freedom.

A square two-storey inner section was created and bat boxes were hung inside.
The original door was blocked up and a grille was added, which gives bats (but no other animals) access to the tower. Bats hibernate there from November to March.

The water tower in Didcot is not only a water tower (with a 74,000 gallon tank), but it’s also a coal stage. A coal wagon would be pushed up the embankment by a locomotive into the brick building under the water tank. There the coal would be unloaded into small wheeled tubs. The tubs were then pushed onto a ramp at the front of the coal stage and tipped up to allow the coal to fall into a locomotive tender.       /Wilco Krul

The Dark Lane water tower in Wellington was built in 1896 and held 40,000 gallons (180,000 litres). The tower was designed by Howard, a local architect.

It was built with Thomas bricks (a local brickyard) and ironwork by Ford Brothers (local foundry). The tower was originally a two storey house with a water tank on top and a hipped slate roof on the water tank.

It became redundant in 1991 and in the mid 90s the new owner replaced the tank with a third storey, but leaving some of the tank plates as balconies. The corner turrets add further distinction, reflecting some of Howard’s designs for his houses in nearby Wellesley Park.

The photo from 1986 shows the tower before the tank was removed and the third storey put on. (Information kindly provided by the Wellington Local History & Museum Society.)

The website of Historic England provides the following information:

“The building is a pattern store, dating from 1897, designed and constructed by the Great Western Railway for the Swindon Railway Works.

The building is surmounted by a four-section cast iron water tank, which covers the entire roof of the building. The tank is covered in part with modern shallow-pitched roofs, and in part with a flat roof covered in mineral felt.

At the south east end of the second floor of the building is a cast iron spiral staircase, which rises up through the tank to the roof, terminating inside a metal turret with a conical roof.

The ground floor and basement have been converted into a restaurant, using lightweight cladding and partitions, behind which much of the original structure survives. The first and second floors have not been converted.”
