How to submit your own photos to TowerBase

Photos of towers are always welcome if they are of unphotographed towers or significantly better than the existing TowerBase photograph. Please send a JPEG image of a tower to The filename of the image should begin with the letters 'TB' followed by the TowerBase identifier which can be found in the bottom left hand corner of the screen, followed by a space and then the name of the tower. For example, the file name for Hursley, Hampshire is

TB2608 Hursley, Hants.jpg

The critical part is the first 6 characters of the file name. They must tie up with the correct TowerBase identifier otherwise the photo will be assigned to the wrong tower.

Leading zeros should be added to the file name if the TowerBase identifier is less than 1000. For example, the filename for Abbey Dore is

TB0001 Abbey Dore, Herefs.jpg

Photos should be jpeg files with a minimum resolution of around 640 x 480 pixels and a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. Typically this should give a jpeg file size between 64KB and 225KB.

Please only send photographs for which you own the copyright (ie towers you have photographed yourself).
