Fetching Up The Watter
Although most of Seaton Snook had running water supplied by the Hartlepool Gas and Water Company↗̱, people who lived on the houseboats or in the fishermen's huts would rely on using seawater, rainwater, or heated water fetched from the Zinc Works, until 1958, when a stand pipe was fitted at the bottom of Snook Road.
The characteristic "Rant" rhythm (to-MA-TO SOUP) is explained fully in the article on Harrison's Rant.
