Tilehurst Water Tower

Tilehurst Water Tower was erected by Reading Borough Council in 1932. It is estimated to hold approximate 900,000 litres of water.[1]

It is considered to be a local landmark. It was built in addition to the Bath Road Reservoir. They are made to supply water to properties at a higher level than the earlier water tower. It is still in use and is owned by Thames Water plc. It has the transmitter for The Breeze, a local radio station.
