Tower Bridge Chimney

A keen observer crossing the bridge may notice that one of the lamp posts on the bridge looks very different from the rest, in fact, it is wider than the rest and has no light on it! On closer inspection it can be seen that this is actually a chimney which services a small room under the bridge. It is believed that the room would have originally been used as a guard post where Royal Fusiliers would have been stationed while protecting the Tower of London.
