TQ3204 : The Pepper Box at the top of Tower Road, Brighton

taken 12 years ago, near to Kemp Town, Brighton And Hove, Great Britain

The Pepper Box at the top of Tower Road, Brighton.
The Pepper Box at the top of Tower Road, Brighton.
Local legend claimed that if you ran round it seven times a witch would come out!
It's not quite clear why it was built. It may have been a water or observation tower for the Attree Villa which was in the park. It has also been used for printing and publishing the Brighton Daily Mail; as an observation tower in WW2; a scout headquarters; an artist's studio and finally as a public convenience. Today it is not used at all.
