TR3967 : Crampton Reservoir

taken 6 years ago, near to Broadstairs, Kent, Great Britain

Crampton Reservoir
Crampton Reservoir
Just beside the Crampton Tower stands this reservoir or cistern. Built circa 1859 and holding 83,000 gallons of water. A write-up at the site compares it to rural cisterns in Turkish villages but I would also compare it to TQ9220 : Water Cistern, St Mary's Church a few miles down the coast in Rye.
