Everwhere. And Lots to Drink

LWT, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

I've always been drawn to water towers (excellent unintentional pun) for some reason and today, with the sun making a somewhat coy appearance I took the car a few miles to the south of the city to grab a shot of this imposing example up on Rivey Hill near Linton. (Google's satellite viewof the area is great. I know they're taking over the world but they do do so much so well we'll at least be happily enslaved...) And whilst ferreting around for information on it I came across this painting of it by local artist Richard Read and thought you might enjoy the rest of his stuff. Anyway, if you're lucky this will be the first and last of the ubiquitous water towers of Cambridgeshire...
