Today’s Friday photo (and yet another water tower!) is Warley water tower.
The tower was built in 1939/1940 on a site that stands opposite Warley Woods public parkland. The parkland was designated and opened in 1906 after a campaign to save it from being developed for housing.
Information from the Old Warley Local History Society mentions that on completion the tower was immediately painted a green/grey colour as camouflage during the second world war, and that later the blast from a bomb dropped on the Warley golf course smashed the door and blew out some of the windows.
