Potterhanworth Water Tower
Potterhanworth Water Tower
Potterhanworth Water Tower was built in 1903 with a tank capacity of 37,000 gallons filled from a 150ft deep artesian bore hole in a nearby field. It was financed by an Endowment from Christ's Hospital as the 16th century philanthropist Dr.Richard Smith, founder of Christ's Hospital in Lincoln had land in Potterhanworth .... his coat of arms can be seen in the brickwork. The two rooms below the tank were used for Parish Council meetings, the Men's Institute and, during the war for the Home Guard platoon. The tower was declared redundant in 1978 and tastefully converted to a private house in 1995.
