The Sound Tower was officially unveiled at Chapel Six Marshes on Saturday. July 5, at 1pm.

The new attraction was unveiled by Coun Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council, who was joined by architects Rhys Cannon and Mathew Springett.

Located on the seafront, the new landmark focuses people’s senses and amplifies the windy nature of the site.

It is part of the Structures on the Edge project, which is developing a gallery of artistic architecture along the coast.

Coun Davie said: “The Sound Tower is part of a wider initiative designed to build on the success of the Bathing Beauties project.Tourism is a key industry on the coast, and all this work is about making the most of the area’s cultural, historical and natural assets, in a bid to attract more visitors.”

“Projects like this are an important element in the regeneration of our seaside resorts.” he said.

The Sound Tower was funded by Lincolnshire County Council (£21,000) and the Rural Development Programme for England.
