Lambeth uncovered coal store including tower and attached tunnels, Portsmouth Road, Surbiton - Kingston upon Thames

Uncovered coal store with tower and attached underground tunnels, built 1851-1852 to the design of James Simpson in a Romanesque style for the Lambeth Waterworks. Sited on what is now a student campus, it has been unused for many years. A structural survey was carried out in 2013 and significant repairs carried out to brickwork and copings. A new use is required in order to secure the future of the building.
