Old water tower, Hunt's Park, Donaghadee :: Shared Description

A water tower, on high ground to the south west of Donaghadee. Listed as HB24/07/055 from where the following summary is taken. “This tower was constructed by Donaghadee Urban District Council around c.1912 and provided the town with its first mains water supply. It remained in use until the 1940s, when it was superseded by Orlock reservoir . . . The top of the tower (just below the tank) has a frieze (or skirt) with open based arched recesses. The tank has a simple parapet, base and conical roof. This tower is important as it is a still intact early example of the use of reinforced concrete”.
