Swanscombe Pylon from beneath
Swanscombe Pylon from beneath
The 623ft high pylon, along with its twin across the Thames at West Thurrock, is the highest in the UK and the second highest in Europe. The ladders leading to the top look tiny in comparison with the structure itself. The pylon is popular with BASE jumpers, one of whom was killed in 2006 jumping from the platform seen at the top.
