Houghton Hall Water Tower Visit

BWTAS is planning to visit Houghton Hall in Norfolk, site of Britain’s finest domestic water tower dating from the late 1720’s and only taken out of use recently. It’s a beautiful Palladian structure sited at a focal point of a magnificent garden vista. According to Barry Barton “enough remains of the original system to make Houghton Hall’s water supply – and its water tower – of considerable historical significance”. This is an open event. We plan to rendezvous at the car park at 12.15 where we'll meet a curator who will walk us over to the tower and show us inside.

The house is the former home of Robert Walpole and is open to the public and has a restaurant and gift shop. The house opens to the public at 1.15 pm. There are two types of entry fee to Houghton: inclusive of the house £8, all except the house £5.

Please contact Wil Harvey at and let him know you if plan to be there.
