Whittingham Water Tower is the part of the hospital I had always wanted to visit ever since visiting many many years ago. Unfortunately on my first visit all those years ago it was steel sheeted shut. However it has been possible to visit the site so I instantly went to investigate!

Whittingham water tower has four levels, each one featuring something extremely photogenic including some beautiful spiral staircase. The most impressive thing about the water tower is the view from the top. You can see for miles around as well as a birds eye view of the main hospital complex. Another nice feature on the roof is the Air raid siren which was around a foot in diameter and around two feet in length.
