Work is taking place to restore a major landmark in Goole - scaffolding has now been put around the town's famous water tower in readiness. Yorkshire Water is spending £42,000 repairing the structure that is almost 90 years old. James Webster reports.
The water tower in Goole is a very well known landmark in the town but it can be difficult to appreciate the scale of the structure. Here are some statistics:
- The tower holds 3.4m litres of water (enough to fill 1½ Olympic swimming pools)
- The structure is around 50 metres tall (165 feet)
- It supplies the entire population of Goole, estimated at 19,360 people.
- Almost a mile of scaffolding was needed to reach the top.
- The repairs will cost around £420,000
It's around 30 years since Yorkshire Water carried out a full inspection of the Goole water tower. Since then its condition has deteriorated which made this year's restoration necessary. Spokesperson Matt Thompson hopes this new work will safeguard the structure's future for another generation.
Around 1km of scaffolding was needed around the tower to carry out the repairs. It took 12 weeks alone to erect that.
Contractors are working from top to bottom removing pieces of concrete that were breaking off the structure and filling in cracks. They are then repainting around the repairs.
