This tower was built just after the Second World War to hold hot waste cooling water piped under the Thames from Battersea Power Station on the opposite bank. The hot water was used to provide heating to a large housing estate nearby.
Thank you very much for your comment, Norman! This is very interesting. I tried to google this tower when I uploaded the photo but I could not find anything.
