Mount Brass

Mount Brass is part of the second belt of the Tower of London, the one overlooking the outside. It was intended to strengthen the defenses of the fortress by adding firepower by cannon. Unlike Mount Legge, this tower could only accommodate cannon on the roof, there were no openings in the walls. On the other hand, it had numerous loopholes oriented from different angles.

Nowadays the best views on this tower is from the outside, from the avenue that passes in front of the Tower of London.
