cane hill | a pictorial record of the interior organisation of the watertower

Third Floor

Other tanks were mounted on the south east wall of the tower, where the next ladder was fixed to climb to the next level.

Itís believed the tanks with the stirrers were chlorination tanks for purifying drinking water. After water was taken from the main tank still above us, was water was chlorinated in the tanks with the stirrers, and then stored in the smaller tanks in the western side of the tower?

View of the same room looking north west. The tanks with the stirrers are to the right, hidden by the supporting concrete wall. Access ladder to the next level is also shown. © Simon Cornwell 2008
