This is the Folly (40 foot high) close to Pontypool Park, Torfaen, Pontypool in Wales, an old Roman watchtower. It was taken down just prior to the Second World War (On July 9, 1940) as it was thought it could be used as a landmark for the Luftwaffe seeking to bomb the nearby Ordnance Factory. It was reconstructed and reopened by the Prince of Wales on July 22, 1994.
