Water Tower In Amble, Northumberland
A spacecraft-like old concrete water tower, standing in the fields near Amble.
The Morwick Water Tower is located in a field in Northumberland just around the corner from Amble and Warkworth.
Its saucer shape is pretty unusual and makes it a unique landmark in the north east.
There isn't a lot of information out there about the water tower other than it was built in 1963 and was probably fed by the nearby reservoir a few fields over.
We did find out that it holds just over half a million litres!
Of course we sent up Red5 for a look around.

Head out from the car park back to the road and you will see the water tower in front of you. Just follow the track up to it.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
