Diss-appearing act

The EDP and the Diss Express report the water tower at Diss, Norfolk, is another one being converted into flats.
This tower is interesting to compare to a similar proposal at Dereham. The lack of detailing in this 1912 tower shows how by the Edwardian era, building costs had escalated and made construction to the Victorian standards of finish no longer feasible.
