Watch the outcome from the Trust’s Jumbo Summer

As part of our celebration of Jumbo Water Tower and heritage learning programme in 2019 the Trust commissioned two films from the art and education charity, Signals.

Workshop in full session.

The first film is an animation which was made by young people aged 12-16 under the guidance of a professional animator. It tells the story of Jumbo from it’s beginnings, the reasons why it was built and how its worked.

The second film features local historians and engineers and is a documentary on the reasons why Jumbo was a vital improvement to water supply for Colchester, the political background at the time, the manner of operation and the reason for it’s eventual redundancy in 1985.

We hope that you enjoy watching them.
