Cleadon Tower, South Shields
Iridescent Infra Red
Cleadon Tower is perched high on Cleadon Hills in South Shields, when the town developed after the industrial revolution of the 1800s the local water company built a small underground reservoir below the hills above South Shields. The tower contained a huge pumping station to supply water to the town. It is no longer in use, as one of Europe’s largest reservoirs, Kielder, now supplies water to all of Tyneside.
This old building has been converted into luxury apartments, it is visible in all directions for many miles around South Shields.
