Cabot Tower was built between 1896 and 1898 in memory of John Cabot, 400 years after he set sail in the Matthew from Bristol and landed in what was later to become Canada. It consists of a spiral staircase and two viewing platforms which overlook the city, the higher of which is approximately 334 feet (102 m) above sea level. It's been closed since 2007 and earlier in the year underwent structural repairs to enable it to be reopen to the public this July. Visited with Eotech on a couple of occasions. I'm not a heights person but this one I couldn't miss out on.

Couple of shots before the scaffolding went up from a few years ago when it was still closed to the public.
