Please come and visit us at our office in The Old Water Tower, a Grade II listed building that was built in 1886 for the Southwold Water Company.
The tank in the original tower had the capacity to hold 40,000 gallons of water and had sails that powered the building.
A new Art Deco style water tower was built next to the original one in 1937, with a capacity to hold 150,000 gallons of water. At this time, The Old Water Tower was sold to Southwold Borough Council – as it was known at the time. It had a number of different owners following the sale to the Borough Council, but was returned to the town council in 1987, for a fee of £100. Since this time it has been leased by the RNLI who used it as a Lifeboat Museum, Adnams and finally by So Southwold and our sister company Suffolk Secrets.
All staff love working in this unique building and we often have visitors climbing the winding staircase to marvel at the unbeatable views from the top floor. Please come and visit us and see for yourself!
