The Water Tower 2002
The water tower is the most prominent part of the original WWII field hospital that still remains. It is one of the first buildings to become visible as you approach the site. Although it has had various new additions the original building still remains intact. This is a picture of the entrance door to the tower on the north side and is the only way in. The door looks to be original with the number 124 still in place. Most of the original buildings had small wooden blocks with numbers painted on them above the doors.
Visible on the right is one of the sidewalls of the lean-too structures that were built around the base of the tower. These are used as garages or storage lockers, (I can remember keeping my bicycle in one in the sixth form when I used to cycle to school instead of using the bus - Sub Ed.). These are still in use today.
