The Blue Door, Vartry Reservoir

This structure would not be out of place on some fantasy adventure, the aging iron bridge providing access to a mythical gateway to a parallel universe.  In reality, the blue door provides access to the valve tower of the Vartry Reservoir, Wicklow, Ireland.  Constructed circa 1865, the reservoir was the first purpose-built reservoir designed to provide a water supply to Dublin.
