SJ9503 : Redundant water tower

taken 10 years ago, near to Essington, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Redundant water tower
Redundant water tower
The tower was last used for water supply a decade ago but since 2003 has been home to various mobile phone masts. There are calls for the water tower to be demolished due to concerns for the health of local residents. It is thought that as the tower is no longer used for water supply the right to the land will revert to the local council or its successors allowing the tower to be removed. Essington is situated on the highest ground in the area with views over to the Black Country, Wolverhampton and Dudley. It is a prime location for mobile phone and telecommunications masts and is near the junction of the M6, M6 Toll and M54 Motorways. A local campaign group, FAME, (Fight Against Masts in Essington)campaigns against any new mast proposals.
