Carshalton Water Tower and Historic Garden Trust

The Water Tower is a unique Grade II-listed early 18th century garden building, sited in the grounds of Carshalton House in Surrey.

As the name suggests, this contained a water-powered pump, which supplied water to Carshalton House and the fountains in its garden. However, the building was and is much more than this as it contains a suite of rooms such as the Saloon, the Orangery and a splendid early 18th century bathroom with tile lined plunge bath.

The Historic Garden Trust includes the Hermitage and Folly Bridge.
