Drink Wild Air

Fun Fact: Broadway Tower

Broadway Tower is a folly on Broadway Hill, near the village of Broadway, in the English county of Worcestershire.  It is the second-highest point of the Cotswolds.   Broadway Tower’s base is 312 metres above sea level. The tower itself stands 20 metres high.

In the late 1950s, Broadway Tower monitored nuclear fallout in England; an underground bunder was built 50 yards from the Tower. Manned continuously from 1961 and designated as a master post, the Nuclear Bunker was one of the last such Cold War bunkers constructed and, although officially stood down in 1991, the bunker is now one of the few remaining fully equipped facilities in England.
