The tower is the base of the chimney for the old Upton pumping station. There is some information (but not a lot yet) on it on my website here.

Puzzled for years over that tower. I always though it may have been a capped shaft/well etc. connected with the old water works.

Never considered it being the base of a chimney. That DOES make sense.

Thanks.

I always thought it was the base of some kind of monument and had just fallen into disrepair or the monument moved when the M53 was built. A chimney - aaaah yes

Hi Truck and welcome,
Ellesmere Port is well within the historical Wirral Hundred so is covered by this site. The post-1974 definition of Wirral's boundary is for politicians only - and their opinions are not held in high regard.
