History of the tower
The Jubilee Tower was built in 1810 to commemorate the golden jubilee of George III. Designed by Thomas Harrison of Chester, it was to be an Egyptian styled obelisk, built in three stages.
The tower was never completed however and in 1862 a strong storm blew it down. It was partially removed to make it safe and what you see today are the sturdy remains of the Tower.
