Bearyards Water Tower by Raymond Okonski
Bearyards Water Tower

This water tower is typical of many in west Central Scotland and particularly Glasgow. Erected on a high point in the town, it allowed the (then) Lanarkshire Water Board to pump water up the tower to fill the reservoir, which in turn gave all the houses nearby increased water pressure from their taps. In the mid 1990's One-2-One (now T-Mobile) received permission to add a mobile phone base station to the top, and after many planning appeals, Vodafone, Orange and O2 joined them, but their antennae are hidden behind the latticework 'top hat' on the tank roof.
