Thanks for cleanup of WW2 water tank


WW2 water tank and its interior (inset)

Readers may remember that this historic WW2 water tank on the Heath was in a real mess with all sorts of litter, wood and leaves. We made a big effort to clean it out in 2016 and 2017, but inevitably it started to fill again. Now, we are very pleased that someone has cleaned it out as shown in the inset picture. Thank you very much that person.

By the way, the depression inside the tank on the left has been the subject of some speculation – maybe it was designed to extract the last of the water which would otherwise be distributed over a larger area and difficult to pump out.
