Crosses In The Water Tower

There is a cross set in the stone work above the west enterence of the Water Tower on Cross Street. This is the most clearly visible of the two or three crosses set in the stone work of the tower. Accoording to local folklore,the crosses mark the places where workers died during the construction of the tower. The story, however, is not true, as none of the workers died during its construction. The workers, it seems, were more accustomed to building churches, and the set the crosses in place for good luck. It must ahve worked, as all of the workers lived to finish the job, and the tower is still in use today.
