TQ2959 : The Towers Of Coulsdon

The Towers Of Coulsdon
The Towers Of Coulsdon
Cane Hill water tower was fed water by a bore hole within a building called Sovereign House that still exists today within Lion Green car park and before this used as a laundry house. It once pumped water half a mile up hill and in and up to the water tower. They used to bore big holes down into the local chalk and water would find its way out of the fissures within the chalk to form a well so that could be used. This is where the water came from back in 1882 and the last date of service for this well house was in 1987.

The second tower is the top of St Andrews Church with is flag flying proudly.

I've seen this view so many times whilst driving down the hill thinking I wish I had my camera, well on this day I did but it was my rubbish camera that I carry everywhere. Teach me not to get my grand camera fixed after dropping it on a solid concrete floor. Sorry for the poor quality photo but I think it's a great view either way and makes you feel home as you drop down in to Coulsdon.
