The Naze Tower opened for the first time in 280 years on Saturday, May 31, 2004.


The restoration work included rebuilding the castellated top, and filling the gaps in the brickwork with steel safety rails.


The interior of the tower has seen the central circular stairway refurbished, and, I think, in places, replaced. On several floors are art galleries from a variety of local artists.

The view from the top is, of course, what its all about. The cafe and cliff top, looking to the south-east.



The car par, groynes and the Naze caravan, open every summer weekend with a small museum inside, as well as information on the Naze and its fossils, geology and wildlife.


The next to go? The concrete slabs lined up for demolition along the cliff top, with the landmark information display on the right.
