Believed to date from 1890, The Water Tower is a fantastic example of Victorian architecture. Designed by reputable architect William Young and the cast iron tank by H. Young & Co. Engineers of Pimlico, London (who also produced the sphinxes at Cleopatra's Needle), the structure is steeped in history yet, having been converted in 2010 now makes for an enviable modern residential home with gas fired underfloor heating throughout and finished to a high specification. Located just a stone's throw from Culford School on the outskirts of the village and standing centrally within farmland in an idyllic rural position, views across farmland towards King's Forest and Culford Park can be enjoyed, both from the inside of the house and from the elevated terrace.
