II Water chute. 1929 with later alterations. Designed and made by Messrs. Chas. Wicksteed & Co. Ltd., erected by the Hull City Council Engineer's Department for the Boating and Open Spaces Sub-Committee. Brick and timber with a hipped plain tile roof. Rectangular brick tower has brick buttresses at the corners and on the side elevations which are divided into 3 panels. The rear, or south east, facade has double plank doors on the ground floor. The top floor has open sides, between the buttresses, with timber grilles. An external iron staircase rises up the north east side of the building and the iron chute which carries the ride extends outwards and down wards from the north west side. This iron chute is carried on tubular iron supports. This is an important, rare and well preserved example of a very early 'water chute or water slide'.
