A tower that was once a tourist attraction is being used as a ghostly town by some locals.
The tower at the top of Semaphore Mountain in Surrey, which has become a tourist destination for the past 15 years, was once the tallest residential tower in the world and a landmark in the town.
It is believed the tower was designed by a German architect who lived in the area during the 19th century.
“There are very few people in the surrounding area that are really aware of the history of the tower,” Ms Mearns said.
The tower was a landmark and that is why it’s such a ghost-town. “
But there’s no doubt that there are a lot of people who live in the tower that are unaware that it was built by the German engineer Hans Hermann.”

“It’s a very strange thing to me.”
Mr Mearnes said there was also a ghost story behind the tower.
“In the tower, there is a picture of the famous German Chancellor Joseph Goebbels, who was very close to Hitler.” “
He said the tower had also been used as an airfield and as a museum. “

“I don’t think that they [the tower] are going anywhere, but there’s still a bit of interest from people to find out what it was like in the 1800s,” Mr Mears said.
“It’s very important that we continue to build up our history in the city.”
Semaphore Tower has been a tourist hotspot for more than a decade.
The towers name was changed from Hermann Hermann in 1904 and in 1917 the tower became a hotel.
The name Semaphores Tower was changed to Hermann Semaphorin after the German Emperor Ferdinand and Isabella of Austria visited the area in 1885.
