NS3777 : Kipperoch Tank

near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Kipperoch Tank
Kipperoch Tank
This water tank has a capacity of 250000 gallons, and was, like NS4176 : Maryland Tank, built to provide storage for NS4176 : Garshake Water Works.

The photograph was taken from the Kipperoch Road (NS3777 : Kipperoch Road near Succoth Lodge).

Thanks to John Coleman, who tells me that in the small wood (see the map) at the end of the field in which this tank is located, there is a much older well or tank built of red sandstone, with an arched top, and with traces of ironwork suggesting a door or a cover.
