"Tourism Revolution Logo" British Watchtower (HaAtsmaut St)
This tower is one of five towers that stand in the city as evidence of the maintenance base of the British Air Force, which operated here in the 1940s.
The tower controlled the entrance to the administrative area of the camp, formed part of a sequence of towers to the west, and was the southernmost of them.
The tower is built of silicate rectangles and has a square shape. The ascent to it was by means of a ladder. On the second and third floors were flat slatted balconies, which faced the interior of the camp.
At the top of the tower was a semi-open guard post, with a shade tin awning and the ability to view the entire space.
To this day, this place is called by the veterans the "gate" - as a memorial to the main entrance gate to the immigrant camp, and later - to the settlement of Rosh HaAyin.
