Hoad Monument, Ulverston, England

Hoad Monument (also known as Hoad Tower and Sir John Barrow Monument) sits atop Hoad Hill in Ulverston, England. It was built in 1850 as a monument to Sir John Barrow (1764 - 1848). The monument is a replica of the 3rd Eddystone Lighthouse. Sir John Barrow was Second Secretary of the Admiralty and also one of the founders of the Royal Geographic Society. Photo taken in May 2009.


  1. Are you sure it isn't called the leaning tower of Hoad? Hope you are having a lovely springtime.

  2. Good point, but just a bad angle on the part of this photographer... I hope you are as well... Cheers
