What was originally known as St John's Beacon, and built as a chimney for the incinerators of the market at its base, this 440ft column had an observation deck, and a luxury restaurant that rotated through 360 degrees every half an hour.
After a series of damaging fires in the 1970s it remained derelict for years. The tower was then bought, restored, and reopened in 2000, as the studios of Radio City 96.7.
In high winds, the tower can sway up to 18ins, luckily it was designed to just that!
