The Horsingdon Transmissions No.155: Ghost Tower Signals
This transmitter sits within a perimiter of iron fencing not far from where the Ebury Way passes the foot of Horsingdon Hill. Erected by the Ministry at some point in the early 1970s, over the years the structure has acquired the nickname of 'The Ghost Tower' on account of the pale, spectral figures sometimes spied at twilight dancing widdershins around the it
