Preliminary design and finished drawings for a viewing tower, 1759-60, unexecuted (6)

If the viewing tower had been executed it would have been 84 1/2 feet high, and according to Harris was a classical variant on the 78 foot high Gothic Brizlee Tower at Alnwick (1777). There is an elevation and section drawing for the viewing tower in the Kedleston drawings collection, and a model of the structure was sent to Kedleston by Adam, though sadly this does not survive.
