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

Fifth Floor

Clambering gingerly along the top of the tank, we were able to size up the brick steps and the vertical ladder. Interesting the vertical ladder appeared to stop short of the top of the water tower. Did it actually lead anywhere or was it just a red herring?

But from this angle, we could see what was perched on these enormous girdlers. We’d reached Cane Hill’s main water tank, the enormous 34,000 gallon beast which topped the water tower.

We were almost there.
