The Northernmost Tower 'BB' is situated at Slaughden and sits isolated on a narrow strip of land between The North Sea and The River Alde on the Southern part of Aldeburgh town. This tower is used as holiday accommodation and is spacious in as much as the tower is formed into a four leafed clover, there must have been several million bricks used in its construction.

Someone once calculated that to get from one side of the tower to the other by boat would take 12 miles to cover whilst the distance is just a few yards by foot
