Incredibly, this monolithic structure which blotted out the view of Bath Abbey as you approached, was to have provided access to an are walkway. Part of the abortive master plan by Sir Colin Buchanan, including a road tunnel under the Paragon and exiting near Charlotte Street, the tower was finally demolished in November 1989.
