Jubilee clock tower, the shelter set on Preachers Knoll on the seafront at Broadstairs. Built in 1897 for Queen Victoria`s Jubilee. The original tower was burnt down in 1975. The replica was rebuilt by apprentices from The Thanet School of Building.

I spent many a happy evening in those shelters when I was a  young teenager  :) 'Nuff said '  :)
It was great for roller skating around those paths too.

Photos of a couple of ornate seafront shelters at Broadstairs. No idea of when they were built but I guess they're Victorian?
