Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.

 Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 

The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.

Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!

Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!

Good effort there. Not seen a water tower quite like that before. I've added some spaces inbetween your pics (y)

Quite possibly one of the ugliest water towers I've ever seen, but also quite cool at the same time, especially for its uniqueness.
