Semi-derelict building; would guess that it will be converted to apartments. Assorted chimneys, towers and vanes but couldn't identify a water tower.

(497) Quite a bit of work going on in the general area of Ripon Close - an area from which the water tower should have been readily visible, but it wasn't. So I had to conclude that it was now no longer. This was confirmed by a local resident. So, missed it by - possibly - 6 months.... Bah!

Building works in progress. Water tower topped by masts and other sticky up bits. I'm sure one is the remains of the vane.

3rd order intersection TF05/INT041. This prominent tower is on the site of the former Lincolnshire County Lunatic Asylum, finally closed in 1989 under a more PC name. The buildings still stand but are abandoned. The OS description refers to a vane but this has gone, but destroyed hardly seems an appropriate condition.
