Lee-on-the-Solent grew as a late-Victorian development.

Its railway and pier, both long gone, prompted ambitious plans to transform the town into a major seaside resort similar in size to Brighton or Bournemouth, but the scheme failed.

The 120ft tower seen here in this shot from the west, was demolished in 1969.
