Sway

We had a rather long coach ride round South Hampshire yesterday in pursuit of a train which we eventually caught 90 minutes late. On the way the we caught site of this strange thing. It's the tallest unreinforced concrete structure in the world. It was built in 1879 to prove the worth of concrete as a building material. I think it was a success.

I imagine it does, especially given the wind on Sunday. It did survive the hurricane in the 80s so it must be pretty tough.
