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

Ground Floor

This ladder followed the original course of the rickety staircase we dare not take back in 2003. (On the right can be seen the wood marks where the original ladder’s steps used to be).

By now we'd reached the mezzanine floor and the original staircase would’ve had a small platform at the end of this rise. From here, one entrance led on the mezzanine floor with the staircase turning again and continuing to the first.

Climbing northeast up the water tower. We've now reached the mezzanine floor with its partition wall on the right. The clean area of wood towards the right shows where the original staircase was fitted. © Simon Cornwell 2008
