Victoria Tower by night, from Crosland Moor Airfield
Victoria Tower by night, from Crosland Moor Airfield
Victoria Tower, on Castle Hill, was completed in 1899 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign. The tower was renovated in 1960 when the top seven feet were removed. It reaches the height of almost 997 feet above sea level. In November 2012 the lantern light on top of Victoria Tower was replaced due to the original light that had failed. The new LED light meets aviation regulations and uses the same energy as a 35W bulb.
Having flown over the tower several times (it is a useful marker on the way to the airfield), I set out this time after landing to walk to it for a look. I then walked back again, and took this shot on return.
