    Hey found this place a few months back and you may remeber I posted up here recently in the leads or rumours section to see if anyone knew what it was. After ALOT of searching I found this​

    "Dated 1931, with filtration plant mechanical equipment designed by Paterson Candy International for Grangemouth Town Council. Closed 1975, equipment upgraded 1985, site re-opened 1989 and finally closed 2000, sold into private ownership 2006. Monumental, 2-storey over raised battered basement, 4-bay, rectangular-plan, Italianate style former pump house with pyramidally-roofed, 4 stage, finialled angle tower. Prominently sited on hills to N of North Third Reservoir, with little altered interior and rare retention of early rapid gravity filters.​


    It contains possibly one of the first rapid gravity filters used in Scotland and is probably the only surviving example in such a complete state."​
