TQ7966 : Tesco water tower

near to Gillingham, Medway, Great Britain

Tesco water tower
Tesco water tower
Before the supermarket was built on this site the water tower was painted battleship grey with the word Bowaters on it. The Bowater paper mill closed some years ago now but this local landmark remains next to what is still known by older residents as the Bowater roundabout.
Gillingham Tesco
This store is Courteney Road, near the large roundabout on the A2 with the A274. It is on a former Bowaters (paper manufacturers) site. See TQ7966 : Tesco water tower, for details about Bowaters.
It is currently undergoing renovation and extension. The store has been given the go-ahead to develop the adjacent former Crest Packaging site, in Courtney Road, to provide an additional 2,500 square metres of retail and storage space. It will also move its petrol station and increase parking space for a further 183 cars. In return it must fund the cost of changes to the Bowater roundabout, which gives access to its site, and give 24,000 towards improved bus services.
