Foredown Tower

Mike has re-opened Foredown Tower, the iconic landmark that overlooks Portslade, in a small ceremony on Saturday.

Foredown Tower has recently been taken over bythe PortsladeLearning Community. It is being renovated and refurbishedto become an adult learning and visitor centre. The towerwas formerly the water tower for Hove Isolation hospital and was converted in 1991 into a countryside centre that also housed a large cameraobscura.The camera reflects the surrounding countryside onto a screen 18 feet below it, which provides a distinctive and fun way of observing the local area.

Commenting, Mike said: This is such a unique attraction. I encourage residents from across the city to come up and see for themselves the tower and witness the camera obscura first-hand. It was wonderful to hear that so many people have been involved with bringing the tower back into use.
