Water tower

De Noordwijkse watertoren

Visit the website
During the construction of the water supply network in 1916, a water tower was built in the dunes north of Noordwijk aan Zee. This water tower was designed by the Amsterdam architect FA Warners. This tower has a square cross-section with chamfered corners and an attached stair tower. This water tower was also intended as a lookout tower and for this reason a stairwell was built in it. The Noordwijk water tower is 23 meters high. The special thing about the Noordwijk water tower was that the total structure could remain relatively low, because the water tower was built on a high dune. In the 1960s, the residents were provided with drinking water through a modern way. Along the Nieuwe Zeeweg, to the east of the Prins Hendrikweg, a pumping station and two large concrete water cellars were built to continuously meet the growing demand for water. The water tower has been owned by the municipality since 1997 and thus this cultural heirloom has been somewhat preserved for posterity.
