Water tank, Fort House, A193 (east side), Hartley, Seaton Sluice, Seaton Valley - Northumberland (UA)

Water tank incorporating former ablutions building, built circa 1917 and a rare survival of part of a World War I fort. Suffering from structural problems and lack of maintenance. A repair scheme has been drawn up with funding from Historic England which has informed an updated structural report in April 2019. There have been recent discussions with the new owner of the site about the repair and conversion of the water tank into an interpretation hub of the history of the fort alongside the repair and re-use of other listed heritage assets on the site.
