Can you light the tower up for my charity?2023-10-11T14:16:01+00:00

Unfortunately no, following the few times we did light the tower up we now get inundated with requests from all sorts of worthwhile causes to light the tower up for those charities. However the cost of lighting up the tower is very expensive so we now do not accept any charity or personal requests to light the tower up.

We will however consider commercial projects.

What does the tower do now?2023-10-11T14:08:22+00:00

Good question. The main focus of the National Lift Tower in the 21st century is research and development into drainage products for high rise and super high-rise buildings. We test new ideas fresh of the drawing board, test new products that are already in development and try to improve on existing products.

Can we visit the top of the tower?2023-10-11T14:05:14+00:00

Unfortunately no, the tower is an industrial working building and is not open to the public.
