Bude's Storm Tower, Sterling Silver Pendant on 16/18 inch adjustable silver chain. The Storm Tower is 15mm high. We also make a slightly larger one, listed separately.
The Bude Storm Tower was built in 1835 as a shelter for the Coastguards looking after the shipping entering and leaving the tiny port of Bude. A flag signalling system was used on a flagpole nearby to pass information to the ships.
Due to erosion it had to be moved back from the cliff edge in 1881/2. Now with continuing erosion it has to be moved again.
