From the Bedfordshire Times, 24 August 1951

"Although the shell of Ravensdenís 100,000-gallon water tank is nearing completion, it will be another 12 months at least before water is being drawn from it.

Tank erectors will shortly take over from the construction men who have almost finished the reinforced concrete tower which stands just over 100 feet high on Sunderlandís Hill on the Kimbolton Road.

When the tank is itself in place, the laying of mains and subsidiary pipelines and erection of a pumping station will account for much of the yearís work yet to be done.

When completed, water at a constant pressure will be available for farm and domestic purposes in the district."
