    It was Heritage weekend in Liverpool and across the country, so I took advantage to get inside a structure I have fancied for a long time. Even though it was a guided tour and talk I managed to sneak off to get a few pics. Good job really as I was escorted out by the Steward during a long exposure as the next tour was ready.


    High Park Street Reservoir, Grade II listed High Park Street Reservoir was built in 1845 and lies just south of the City Centre in the Dingle area of the city. The Reservoir was designed to provide clean water in order to improve health and sanitation for the rapidly increasing population of the City.

    It is a vast, solidly built, rectangular structure enclosing approximately 2600m2 with a tower at one corner. It has massive external walls of sandstone that decrease in thickness with height, brick floors and high vaulted brick ceilings supported on cast iron columns. A series of brick columns and arches form a ‘cloister’ around the main space. The roof is covered in earth and provides spectacular views across Liverpool, the River Mersey, and beyond. Until 1997, it was used for the storage of water, but it has become redundant
