Description
The 567ft New Brighton Tower was similar to the much more famous Blackpool Tower, 26 miles(41km) away.

The tower stood on an ornate gothic base that contained a ballroom.

It was open until World War One, when the tower was temporarily shut down, during the war the metal was not maintained and became rusty.

After the war the tower was unsuitable for public use,so the owners decided to pull the building down rather than pay for costly repairs, the base remained as an entertainment venue until it was destroyed by fire in the 1960s.
