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 but this project has subsequently stalled and a solution is yet to be finalised and implemented.
