NEW BOOK ABOUT JUMBO LAUNCHED!

The book launch was packed out and the book has attracted much praise. All profits from its sale will to set aside to contribute to a future scheme for Jumbo which conforms to our vision of the tower as a heritage attraction.
The Grade II* listed Jumbo is the largest remaining Victorian water tower in Britain, and an increasingly rare example of one in an original condition.
We will continue to press for our vision for Jumbo as a national heritage attraction, with the maximum practicable public access to a restored building, ample historical interpretation and floodlighting.
