Everton Water Tower
When the old Liverpool Corporation Waterworks built the water tower on the top of Everton Hill in 1856 they created a sandstone masterpiece that dominates the area to this day. It still performs a vital role the city's water distribution system. Designed by the Liverpool's first water engineer, Thomas Duncan, it is all that is visible of the one and a half acre 12 feet deep water service reservoir. The local red sandstone hides a cast iron tank 90 feet above ground level
