Smeaton's Tower on Plymouth Hoe

Smeaton's Tower was the third lighthouse to stand on the Eddystone Rocks, a few miles out to sea from the city of Plymouth. It remained in use until 1877 and was later dismantled and the upper section rebuilt on Plymouth Hoe as a memorial to its designer, John Smeaton. The foundations and stub of the tower remain in situ close to the new and current Eddystone Lighthouse which can be seen here.
