Information on Watchtowers G40, R23, and R21 on the Irish Border

The request was successful.

Lindsay M Meaklim

Dear Ministry of Defence,
I'm a Archaeology Masters Student at the University of York undertaking a GIS project on three watchtowers on/near the Irish border. The three towers I'm interested in studying are Croslieve G40, Tievecrom R23, amd Jonesborough Hill R21. To aid in this study I would like to request information on the dimensions of these three watchtowers, particulary their highest points to allow for viewshed anaylsis. Any information on the construction and removal of the towers would also be appreciated.

Thank you for any information you can provide on this subject.
Yours faithfully,
Lindsay Meaklim
