Around the area you can see quite a lot of water towers - something we don’t really have in Germany. Most of them look like the ones in Sim City (where they magically generate water out of thin air). I assume that here they are used to have water during power outages.
One of the larger towers is standing in Birmingham and fascinated me when I passed by. One evening, I stopped and took pictures of this tower while it was already completely dark. I should’ve brought a tripod but I’m surprised that I managed to hold the camera quite steady.
