Water Tower

This picture was taken inside the Water Tower building in Canterbury Cathedral.
It was built in the 12th Century following the designs by Prior Wilbert. The water came froma cistern on the floor above and it was distributed to other parts of the monastery.
You can see what the building look like from the outside here.

Hey, Rose! You and Eric must've been on the same wavelength: You each allowed me a visit to a church today! (Need I say again how much I loooove churches?) I really like the arches and the floor in this photo, and the information is quite interesting. Thank you! :)
