Time Ball Tower Museum, Deal
The tall building was built as a naval semaphore station during the Napoleonic Wars. In 1855 it was converted to a Greenwich time reference for shipping. The ball was raised and then dropped at 1 p.m., synchronized with Greenwich electrically via the railway telegraph. This was discontinued in 1927. It is now a museum. A grade II listed building.
