Last chance to see the water towers

 At the bottom of our street are two statuesque water towers.

They were part of the old military base that used to be here and they have not been used for a few years. I like them a lot, but I can see that it would be dangerous to leave them in the middle of a housing estate. 

I can imagine that the local teenagers would be keen to climb them, and if nobody was looking I would like to get to the top too. 

They are being demolished tomorrow to make way for for more houses, and for a road that joins up with the street used in the Grand Designs series. 


Speaking of Grand Designs, yesterday I saw Kevin McCloud being filmed pushing a wheelbarrow along a street just near to us, so watch out for that in a future programme.
