Long Description:
This water tower formerly in Osborne Street was one of three in Wolverton.

The town water tower at the junction of Green Lane and Western Road was built in 1887 of blue and red brick, and is the last remaining example of three built by the LNWR to provide the town with a clean alternative to the canal water supply. It was used until 1948 when Wolverton became part of the local mains supply.
