Broadway Tower - Cotswolds

Atop a Cotswold hill sits the Broadway Tower, a somewhat peculiar looking structure, that nonetheless draws the eye.

On Broadway Hill, the second highest peak in the Cotswolds at 1024 feet, Broadway Tower stands 55 feet high. Designed and built at the very end of the 18th century to resemble a castle, and it certainly does, a compacted one at that.

On clear days standing atop Broadway Hill, or in Broadway Tower affords sweeping views in all directions, as far as the Welsh Mountains to the west.
