Rossall Point Observation Tower

The project consists of the new build of a Observation Tower at Rossall Point which provides a base for the National Coastwatch Institution.

It also provides a viewing platform for the general public and bird watchers, with views over the Irish Sea and the Lune Deep, the Lakeland fells and the Fylde Coast.

The views from the top of the 14m high tower will be projected on to a screen in an education centre on the ground floor.

“(We were) impressed with the quality of construction executed by Parkinsons as well as the way in which the building’s size and arrangement respected the proportions of the local streetscape whilst providing space in ingenious ways.”
