ANNAN WATER TOWER, BACK OF THE HILL, ANNAN, DG12 6TN

Redundant Water Tower on Site of 81.6 sq. m (97.67 sq yards)

Location

Annan is a town in Dumfries and Galloway with a population of 8,500. The town is 19 miles from Carlisle, 16 miles from Dumfries and there is a rail service to Glasgow and Carlisle. Clippers up to 1,000 tons were built at the port but now there is just a small quay and some fish processing factories. The Annan Distillery dating from 1830 re-opened in 2014 and will soon be producing a single malt. The water tower is 1 mile south of the High Street, about halfway to the shoreline and is clearly visible on the top of a hill. Follow signs to the railway station then drive along Elm Road to Back of the Hill.

Description

The tower is on the highest point of an elevated area of land and as a result it has views south across the Solway Firth to the the Lake District and to the Criffel in the west. The tower is a raised covered tank on 8 pillars constructed with reinforced concrete. It is about 12m high and has an overall diameter of 8.87m. Beneath the tank is some pipe infrastructure. National Grid Coordinates: NY192654.

Please note the nearby building and adjacent land are not part of the sale.

Planning

The planning authority is Dumfries and Galloway Council, Development Management, Kirkbank House, English Street, Dumfries, DG1 2DD. Tel 01387 260199.

Viewing

Pedestrian access can be taken by walking through the gate between houses called Elstree and Rigg View (postcode DG12 6SB) on Back of the Hill, then into the field that is south of the tower. The under surface of the tank has some surface spalling so wear a hard hat if standing under the tank. Please note there may be livestock in the field so please respect farming activities.
