Naze Tower, Essex Giclée Travel Poster
Giclée travel poster of Naze Tower (also known as the Hanoverian Tower) in Wlaton-on-the-Naze, Essex. An 18th century navigational tower, Naze Tower was built in 1720 to a height of 86 feet in order to aid navigation along the Essex coastline - with the coast around the Naze otherwise lacking in major landmarks by which to set a ship's course. With the busy port of Harwich located nearby, this was an important stretch of water - and so it is no surprise that landmarks have been built in Naze Tower's place since at least the 16th century, if not earlier. The tower's commanding views out over the North Sea saw it used as a lookout station in the Napoleonic Wars and First World War, while its height made it the ideal place for a radar dish during the Second World War.
Today, Naze Tower is a Grade II* listed building that is open to visitors, hosting a gallery, museum, and café. The tower is a popular destination for visitors from Walton-on-the-Naze and beyond, and a common starting points for walks across the Naze. We are delighted to work with Naze Tower to offer greeting cards and prints of the tower from their gift shop.
