The Mount

We are informed this building, located in the sand dunes at the top of what is now the junction of Pizy Avenue and Trinity Rise, was one of the first experimental buildings made entirely of concrete. It was demolished after falling into disrepair.

  1. Hi
    I would like to find out more information about the mount, and its experimental construction. Where can i find this as information seems to be hard to come by.

    1. Hello Ben,

      The Mount is one of Burnham’s most talked about ‘lost’ structures. There does appear to be very little documented regarding construction and ownership. Many people have told me it was constructed entirely of concrete but I have been unable to confirm this. Hopefully someone reading your request may be able to help.
