WATER TOWER built to cope with town's growing needs! LOL.
The dolly housing estate has it as a feature, aligned the development to take in this great bit of Goole, plus Shuffle Mill and a mature Weeping Willow in back yard of M. Road, trouble there is that the owners have suddenly, and "unfortunately" found it too is ailing and will need to be chopped down. That leaves only the Water Tower and Shuff Mill for the residents to view.
