The official aims of the tower are twofold - firstly they allow guests to get a raised view of the reedbeds - by looking down from above you get a great picture of where the reedbeds are being renewed and all the various pathways and pools within them. Secondly, from a conservation point of view, they allow the RSPB to keep a clearer watch on the movement of different species in and out of the area.
Between you and me the third benefit of the tower is the fact that it offers the best mobile phone signal in Silverdale - but don't tell Annabel I mentioned that...
Rather than me wittering on the best way to show you how great the Sky Tower is is by showing you how great the Sky Tower is - definitely worth finding an excuse to nip over there to check it out for yourself.
