I know many SOTAists will have visited Moel Famau at some time and climbed on the remains of the Jubilee Tower. Many people commonly believe the jubilee tower was something to do with Queen Victoria as there are many Victoria monuments scattered about the UK. However, this tower was built to celebrate the golden jubilee of George III in 1810 and was badly damaged by a storm in 1862 and partially demolished soon after.
Brian G4ZRP sent me two scans of some Victorian postcards that shows the tower damaged after the storm but before the demolition took place. I’ve uploaded them to the Flickr group. There aren’t that many images of the proposed tower around on the web but I did find this link http://cy.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delwedd:Twr_y_Jiwbili_Moel_Famau.jpg which shows what it would have looked liked had it been completed.
Unfortunately, the text looks like it’s been encrypted with ROT13 OK, apologies to our GW brethren, the link is from the Welsh Wikipedia site. There again I never knew there was a Welsh Wikipedia so I’ve learned something new.
