SJ3691 : Water works, Margaret Street, Liverpool (1)

near to Liverpool, Great Britain

Water works, Margaret Street, Liverpool (1)
Water works, Margaret Street, Liverpool (1)
A remarkable spectacle, looming over the surrounding houses. Pevsner describes it as "one of the most impressive monuments of C19 Liverpool". The 85-foot tower dates from 1857, a covered reservoir having preceded it by three years (now gone). The two tiers of open arches are dramatic and open up tantalising vistas (even if nowadays they are only of back gardens). To the left is a square-towered pump house, and a later one stands just out of shot (SJ3691 : Water works, Margaret Street, Liverpool (2)). All this is the work of Thomas Duncan, Liverpool Corporation's water engineer. Grade II listed.
