    Time Ball Tower Museum, Prince of Wales Terrace, Deal.
    Tel: 01304 360897.

    The time ball tower was built in 1820 and was originally a Semaphore tower. It was used to pass messages along the East coast to help the Coastal Blockade in their fight against the smugglers.

    In 1853 the time ball was built on the top of the building. The ball was dropped once a day at 1pm by direct electrical signal from Greenwich. This enabled ships chronometers to be accurately set which was important for navigation.

    The book Longitude by Dava Sobel is a great read before visiting the timeball tower.

    Among other curios is an extremely rare Charles Shepherd electrical clock, one of only four known in existence.
