Wacky stuff we like - Sway Tower

We feel an affinity with anything wacky. Sway Tower was built by a retired judge between 1879 and 1885 in Sway in the New Forest. Andrew Peterson had been told to do so after a séance with the late Sir Christopher Wren. It is 218 feet high. He first built a prototype a mere 50 feet high. The Tower is the world's highest structure made entirely of non reinforced concrete.
