Air House Cooling Towers (418)
The test cells, experimental equipment and gas turbines under test required a plentiful
supply of cooling water and for this purpose a complicated network of reservoirs, cooling
towers, pump houses and pipe circuits were installed at Pyestock.
Some of the cooling towers were small, wooden framed constructions whilst others were built
on a much larger scale from concrete and metal.

The Air House Cooling Tower stood to the south of the Air House
and had a total capacity of 1,250,000 gallons of softened water therefore making it the largest cooling
tower on the site.
