SZ0891 : Leaning tower of Bournemouth

taken 24 years ago, near to Bournemouth, Great Britain

Leaning tower of Bournemouth
Leaning tower of Bournemouth
The Square, Bournemouth, was in fact a large roundabout until 4 October 1992 when it was closed to traffic for the last time to enable a pedestrianisation scheme. It was only when workmen started removing the shrubbery that it was realised that the tower was actually leaning – the centre of the tower at the top being fully 18 inches adrift from the centre of the foot.
Once the pedestrianisation was complete, the tower remained for a short period, during which this picture was taken, before itself being removed and replaced by a camera obscura/café that now stands there (see SZ0891 : Bournemouth: The Square).
