Hi All,

Does anyone know of a good source of information on the water tower at Padstow?

I have a South Western Circle drawing (of 1977), which says the walls and pillars are constructed from 9"x18"x4" blocks. And yet a photo (from 1960) on p.11 in the 2008 revision of the 'Illustrated History of the North Cornwall Railway' clearly shows brick (in what looks to be English bond).

Also, I can't for the life of me work out how the sort of 'crenellated' structure at the base of the tank is formed. It shows up in most photos but the SWC's drawing doesn't show it at all!!

Any help much appreciated
