Open House – The Limehouse Hydraulic Accumulator

Rather a unique building available for view was the Limehouse Hydraulic Accumulator.

I managed the climb up the tower quite easily and as you can see some pictures were taken of the view from the top.

The machinery in the tower was originally built by William Armstrong and was used to provide hydraulic pressure to the cranes and other machinery around the docks.
