Jumbo is the UK’s largest Victorian Water Tower and I can see it from my house!
Sadly it has been empty and nearly derelict for years with lots of contentious planning permission for the site.
This agent was lucky enough to be able to take a closer look and climb the 95 steps to the top.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4OJ9l7hRGw]
Jumbo is currently up for auction and I really hope Colchester Council see sense and enable Jumbo to be transformed into something special which will benefit the community and preserve this Victorian masterpiece.
