Ingleby Water Tower, Ingleby, Coast to Coast
The turreted facade of the stone building has gargoyles in its eaves. It is a small water tower by most standards, and was erected in 1915 by Sir Hugh Bell, for the purpose of securing a water supply for the village and the nearby village of East Rounton, where Sir Hugh lived. Sir Hugh was one of Middlesborough's greatest iron masters, and was also its mayor. The tower is listed as a grade II Listed Building. Inside the building is a vintage fire engine.
Just a brief (but steep) walk from here will take you to the North Yorks Moors National Park, which is accessed via the nearby Arncliffe Woods, also on the Coast to Coast path.
