On the summit of Leith Hill is an 18th-century Gothic tower.In 1765-6 Richard Hull of nearby Leith Hill Place built "Prospect House", later to become known as Leith Hill Tower, with the intention of raising the hill above 1,000 ft (305 m) above sea level.The tower is 19.5 metres (64 ft) high and consisted of two rooms "neatly furnished", with a Latin inscription above the door announcing that it had been built not only for his own pleasure, but also for the enjoyment of others.Hull provided visitors with prospect glasses, similar to a small telescope, through which to survey the extensive views towards London and the English Channel, each some 25 miles (40 km) away.Ethelwulf was able to use position on high ground to win the huge battle that followed.This battle ended the Danes immediate prospects of conquering the whole of Britain.Leith Hill Tower is open to the public every day from am until pm weekdays and am to pm on weekends, every day of the year except Christmas Day, with a comprehensive display explaining the history of the tower.Standing on the top of Leith Hill Tower you are at the highest point in the south-east of England.

It has been claimed that on a clear day, 13 counties can be seen from the top of Leith Hill Tower.As a result, the tower was filled with rubble and concrete, and the entrance bricked up.In 1864, Mr Evelyn of nearby Wotton House decided to reopen it, but the concrete made this difficult, and so the additional turreted side-tower was added to allow access to the top of the tower.In 851AD the Danes planned a full scale invasion, after raiding the country regularly for many years.The Danes invaded up the Thames and burnt Canterbury and then London.
