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.
