The Brede Heritage site is rather special. It tells the story of water supply for the Hastings area from the steam days of 1904. The Giants are huge and reach over 9 metres (30 feet) high. They are located in tall brick engine houses displaying striking architectural features in the baroque and art deco styles.

Today, safe water is rather taken for granted, and we aim to tell the Brede story in a friendly and informative way. We offer free guided tours.
