History - Potterhanworth Water Tower was built in 1903 with a tank capacity of 37,000 gallons filled from a 150ft deep artesian bore

The two rooms below the tank were used for Parish Council meetings, the Mens Institute and, during the war for the Home
Guard platoon. The tower was declared redundant in 1978, auctioned in 1988 and converted into a private house in 1996.
