I think it was the original water tower but has been
replaced by the one in New Brighton. It is listed see:-

Perhaps he was a wrestler who frequented the New Brighton wrestling circuits back in the 50s/60s and that was his stage name.

I live right by it.I like it except it blocks out a big chunk of the night sky from my yard.A lazy star gazers nightmare.And the kestrels that usually nest in the top right corner of your first pic are amazing to watch as the teach there young to hunt.

I know you can't get into it. Every window (none of them have glass in) have bars over, iron plates welded over the bars and bricks behind the bars. Front door has cctv watching it and about a billion padlocks.

I'm sure I've seen an old picture of St Alban's Church with a pool or pond next to it - was the water tower built on that? And if so, how has the pool been contained so that the surrounding area isn't permanently waterlogged? And was that pool anything to do with the mill that gave Mill Lane its name?

The pond was actually part of Littledale's Model Farm and lay in front of the farm manager's house which still stands in Eldon Road. It was originally created by the extraction of clay for the bricks from which the farm buildings were built. It was filled in when the shops at 42-58 Mill Lane and the adjoining houses in Rullerton Road and Eldon Road were built.
