Paul Anthony Moore / 12,038 items
Broadway Tower is a folly overlooking the village of Broadway in Worcestershire. The base is 312 meters (1,024 feet) above sea level, and the actual tower is 17 metres (55 feet) high. It was built in 1794.

Sir Thomas Phillipps once housed his printing press there, and it was also used as a retreat by the artists William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones who lived there in the 1880s.

Today, the tower is a tourist attraction and the centre of a country park with various exhibitions open to the public.
