Visit to Carshalton Water Tower
Sunday September 26, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We plan to visit this little known historic building as a group on a regular open day. The group will leave from Clapham Junction on the 14.02 train (meet on platform 15) for the 20 minute journey. The tower is a 10 minute walk from the station and we will meet any car drivers at the Tower at 2.30pm.
The Water Tower is a unique Grade II listed 18th Century garden building which supplied water Carshalton House and garden. The building is much more than this, containing interesting rooms and and a tile lined plunge bath. There are also the remnants of a landscape garden.

The area around Carshalton Ponds offers the Honeywood Museum and cafe and the Sutton Ecology Centre so that after the Water Tower visit there is an opportunity to explore further.
