This is one of six open days in the year when you can visit the Chatley Heath Semaphore Tower. The tower was once part of a chain which was used to pass messages between the Admiralty in Whitehall and the Royal Naval Dockyard in Portsmouth. It was built in 1822 and is now the only restored surviving tower in a line of signalling stations that stretched from London to Portsmouth. Come and learn the history of the tower and take a trip to the top to see the breathtaking views. Dogs are not allowed in the tower.
