4/78 Water tower approximately 200
- metres north-west of Reeve Castle
Water tower. Circa 1900. Rubble and brick, roof material not known. Tall square-
section tower. The lower part is rubble with red brick quoins, the upper part is
faced with red brick with a lower band of cream-coloured brick and with an upper
dripcourse. There is a doorway on the east side and a single stair window. The
stair turret projects up onto the flat roof which is enclosed with plain iron
railings. The water was pumped into the tower by means of an iron-framed windmill
which lies on its side close by.
The water tower provided the head of water to feed the elaborate system of water
gardens, ponds, lakes and waterfall in the grounds of Reeve Castle (q.v.).
