This stone structure sits alongside the track which runs from the main gates of Middleton Park, as it nears the Rose Garden. Although the perspective here gives the impression of it being rectangular in shape, it is actually square. Visible access via the small hole on the right indicates that there is a breeze-block inner wall. It is understood that the building contains a huge rubber-lined, galvanised steel tank from which water was once automatically pumped to sprinklers at various points on the now de-commissioned Middleton Park Municipal Golf Course.
