Built in 1858, this picturesque Italianate Observatory is of exceptional significance for its range of changing uses over two centuries, including milling (the first windmill); defence (the first, and still extant, fort fabric); communications (the flagstaffs, first semaphore and first electric telegraph connection); astronomy, meteorology and time keeping.
