    Jo, I think that the reservoir was used after water came from Wales. Why it is put out of action I don't know. It is on the too of a hill, and those at the bottom got really good pressure. Those at the top had poor pressure, but pumps would put that right.

    Does anyone know where Liverpool has local reservoirs in use? I can't think of any.

    It was decommissioned just under 5 years ago. The tower worked on the same principle as a toilet cistern.

    It would be nice as a 'visitor attraction' the water works, real history. I asked United Utilities some time ago, and they were't really interested. The Everton water tower would be interesting to see as well.
    Gregs dad has photographed Everton Water Tower too.

    Just looking for them. In the meantime, here's some here by Lindy Lou.

    Fine photographs, Lindy. So the Lyceum is now a Post Office, is that right? As you probably know, it was begun as a gentleman's private library and reading room at the beginning of the 19th Century, I believe with help from subscriptions raised by William Roscoe and others.

    Sadly, the Post Office part, like so many up and down the country, was closed down about five years ago. It had been beautifully and expensively restored not many years before, but that counted for nothing in the face of the separation between Royal Mail and the PO, preparations for privatisation, etc. The basement, however, is still retained by the Co-operative Bank as their Liverpool Headquarters.

    Thanks, John, you or someone might have to explain to me how the Royal Mail could be separated from the PO, since I thought the Royal Mail is the Post Office in the UK, though I can conceive that privatization of the actual post office branches and the delivery of the mail by the Royal Mail might be two different functions. While I was in the UK in October, there was industrial action taking place which delayed two parcels getting to me.... one of which I have yet to receive back. Ugh.

    Wally juice very funny.....don't know whether you remember Ged but back in the early to mid 70's everyone used to meet at Probe before going on to the Stadium (yea to stock up on patchouli oil) for those classic Saturday gigs where you got five bands for 44p....and the clarion call of Stadium heads was indeed "WALLY" and used it when in a crowd or an unfamiliar place to identify fellow Stadium heads by shouting "Wallt" at the top of your voice.
    Pete Buns and his missus had a little "boutique" selling wierd clothes at the back of Probe....and we all used to sit around on the floor smoking joints and taking the **** out of those foolish enough to be trying on Pete's creations.

    Yea thanks Ged it's a great bit of nostalgia...but a bit sad when reading that half of the old Stadium crew are dead or infirm. The Stadium on a Saturday was ace.....then Sunday night everyone would meet up down the Dixie (Dixieland Showbar) in Southport. Great days.

    I think it`s been taken from a higher position possibly standing on a platform so as to get all the guests in.
