This home made tower, constructed from an old bell tower, is held firm by wires attached to nearby trees. Information was found in the Wimmera Mail-Times of 14th March 2008. The article was a "Blast from the Past 17-03-1995"
Paper clipping supplied by Rhonda Barrand (Mt. Clay).

Structure is an old 8.6m section of hose drying tower (I think from Hopetoun originally? the other half of the tower ended up somewhere in Rainbow or something like that), haphazardly guyed to the surrounding trees. The lookout shelter is an old tractor cabin (approx. 1.5m x 1.5m) which has been welded to the top of the frame. The tower is located on private farm property, and has been unused for about 10 years.
