This folly stands at the end of kilometre long vista rising from King John’s House, the principal house on the Rushmore Estate. It arose from a need to provide a better police communication system requiring five steel masts 17 metres high on this high ground to the Cranbourne Chase Area of Outstanding Beauty. This was not acceptable in both an AONB and a grade II* historic park and garden (The Larmer Tree Gardens were designed in the 19th century by the then estate owner General Augustus Pitt Rivers using Indian building acquired by the General). However the estate and local authorities agreed to bow to the need if the masts could be incorporated into a folly. The design is therefore in an Indian Mogul style with one large and four small copper domes whose finials comprise the exposed tips of the 17 metre high radio masts. Materials comprise limestone panels/ detailing with red ochre lime washed walls.
