The Victoria Jubilee Tower on Castle Hill

Castle Hill, Huddersfield
Some more views of Castle Hill

Perched on a steep hill overlooking the northern industrial town of Huddersfield in the Kirklees area of West Yorkshire, the imposing structure of the Victoria Tower was built to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign, and was completed in 1899.

From Castle Hill and the Victoria Tower (which is only opened to the public on certain days of the year) there are superb views across the Holme Valley to Holmfirth and Holme Moss to the south (marking the northern boundary of the Peak District National Park), the Emley Moor transmitter to the east (a concrete communications tower which is Britain's tallest free standing stucture), and the sprawling industrial mass of Huddersfield to the north.
