The planners were having none of that and insisted that it went inside the tower. That would necessitate it being smaller than we would have wished as it had to squeeze between the massive iron beams that supported the tank, at 4 foot centres. Furthermore it would be a prominent feature of our main living space. It has proved incredibly useful but it could not be denied that it was a bit of an eyesore.
We have puzzled for a long time how it might be somehow concealed or visually subdued but without success. Recently, inspiration struck. Why not make it into a clock tower?

Effective, useful and something which gives function to what used to have all the appeal of a large upright freezer.
