This place has intrigued me since I saw it about 4 or 5 years ago, but I had no idea it was derelict until about a year ago - from a distance it looks like it's still in use as it's not in that bad shape.

I'm not sure if this was a control tower of some sort, or merely an observation platform. It's next to folkestone harbour, and yellow pages dating would put it's closure at around 2003/4.

Unfortunitely I didn't get many photos - I was somewhat limited photography wise as we couldn't use torches being surrounded by glass in direct line of sight of the the harbour entrance, but I thought I'd stick them up anyway. We did venture into the lower levels of the tower, but I couldn't photograph anything down there - it was too dark - there wasn't much left to see anyway, kitchen, staff room and offices.

This is what it looks like on the outside

This is what it looks like at the top on the inside. It's a lot smaller than you think it's going to be.


And the view out of a couple of the very dirty windows at the top


Apologies for the photos, but I thought it was interesting enough to warrant a post. (I don't blame anyone if it ends up in the epic fail bin of doom however as the photos are proper crap.)
