The Tower

By akw
Approximately 1000 m/3500 ft from the dam is the reservoir's straining tower. Standing only 30 m (100 ft) from the shore its purpose is to filter or strain out material in the water with a fine metal mesh, before the water flows along the aqueduct to Liverpool. Its architecture is Gothic and built during the same time as the dam. The tower as a whole is 63 m (206 ft) tall, 15 m (50 ft) of which is underwater. The other 48 m (160 ft) is above water, and is topped with a pointed copper clad roof, which makes it look light green.
