This water tank is located underground and is located near to where Goldenberry Cottage once stood. It is roughly two meters deep and about 4 meters wide and 6 meters in length with an arched roof within a small area that has a nice bricked wall.

It was the main private water supply for Goldenberry Cottage and Farm due to the distance from a main supply and was probably constructed mid 19th century. All the water runs down from the hill then into clay pipes that feeds into the tank and then to the properties nearby.

Now that both the cottage and farm no longer exists after being demolished in December 2013 the tank will now just lay abandoned as it will serve no one, not even the animals.
