The Everton Water Tower

 The Everton Water Tower is a water tower located on Margaret Street in Everton, Liverpool. It is one of the hallmarks of the neighborhood. It was built in 1857 and is located next to Everton Brow Park, in an urban environment dominated by terraced houses (semi-detached houses) built in the last half century. It was designed by the municipal civil engineer, Thomas Duncan.

The tower consists of 3 floors, in the first one a series of 12 arches of rustic style can be observed, the second floor also consists of an arcade of 12 arches, but these take in each one of them a band of impost, a corner stone and an upper cornice. The top floor contains a water tank with iron supports.  The tower was put up for sale in 2018 by the water company, (United Utilities), its owner, as the tower lacked use at the time. After several unsuccessful bids, the tower was auctioned and sold to an unknown buyer in February 2019 for £70,000.
