SV9416 : The Daymark on St Martin's

taken 6 years ago, near to Higher Town, Isles of Scilly, Great Britain

The Daymark on St Martin's
The Daymark on St Martin's
This large structure was built to aid navigation, as it could be seen from many parts of the archipelago of the Scillies. It was never a lighthouse (there wasn't one on St Martin's), hence its description as a 'daymark'. But to modern eyes it looks as if it is about to launch into space!
