The tower was taken out of service in 1939 and has been unused since. In recent years, there have been a number of proposals for the future use of the tower, including converting it into a restaurant, a hotel, or a visitor attraction. The Water Tower is a significant piece of Kenilworth's industrial heritage and is a popular local landmark.
