Telegraph Tower
Telegraph Tower
One of three gun towers proposed and built on St.Mary's by Major Daniel Lyman in 1803. It stands at the highest point in the Isles of Scilly, 165 feet above sea level and is now used as a coastguard lookout tower.

It reputedly got its name after 1898 when Marconi successfully received wireless signals here from Porthcumo in Cornwall, 30 miles away
