At the south-eastern end of the house is the water tower, built in 1912 by Mr. Coates in order to supply water both to the house and the neighbouring cottages he built around the same time. Like other old buildings this too has a ghost associated with it, which has its origin in the unhappy love affair and the tragic end of a young maiden who jumped off the top, during the time of Lord Chesham. The tower, apart from the water tank at the very top, now houses the biology, physics and chemistry laboratories.
I ain’t afraid of no ghost! Especially not after lunch on a clear, bright day. Here are the views over the school, parkland and beyond.
