the water tower and the view

Water tower on Granogue

Water tower on Granogue

Climbing up the steps of the water tower on Granogue is so super cool. It has (I think) essentially the best view of the Brandywine Valley. And I have been fortunate enough to do it twice in my lifetime. This most recent time I had a camera with me.

When you reach the top and climb out onto the top, it’s like you can reach out and touch the sky. The wind whistles around your head, it’s not for the faint of heart. But oh, the view. There is nothing like it.

It’s on private property. So I am sharing some photos with you.

Thank you to my friends who made this possible. I loved every minute of it ….again.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I really love the old water towers. There are a few in Baltimore. When built, with just the pipe sticking up out of the ground, they were called Stand Pipes. Once someone enclosed them in masonry, they became Water Towers. Does this still have water in it?
