Uxbridge Common, Greater London (1907)

BWTAS member, Jennifer Silvester, kindly sent in this photograph of the now converted water tower located at TQ 06019 85191. The Uxbridge tower was completed in 1907 for the Uxbridge Water Works company, holding 80,000 gallons of water. Looking at old maps, we see that by 1934 a large reservoir has been built beside the tower, by Uxbridge Urban District Council. I do not know when the tower went out of use, but it was sold in 1980, for conversion to a dwelling. The tower is not a listed building.
