Water Tower by Tonkin Liu

Water Tower is a project designed by Tonkin Liu. The historic village of Castle Acre is home to a ruined Norman Castle, a ruined 11th century Priory, a ruin Bailey gate and a ruined steel Water Tower. The Water Tower had been relocated from a local airfield after the war and had become a popular landmark with villagers, many of whom had climbed it during their youth.
