Perrott’s folly

Looking out towards Cradley Heath hill and the television transmitter – I realised that none of the buildings would have been visible in 1759 when Perrott had the tower built. Nice to see this 97 foot tall one room wide tower being used for exhibitions. The deer parks and heath land were built over to give us the city we see now, but this strange tower survived.
