There was some modern footage of a tubular mast of similar construction, was it Winter Hill?
Well if it was the 'original' mast, then I not only remember the one before it, I can also see that one, where it now is, from my bedroom window.

Winter hill is, I believe, still standing and is still tubular. It has a load of chains suspended inside it as a resonance damper. Belmont, ditto.

Can't afford the volcanic island yet, but the plans for my monorail and the goons' uniforms are done
