  • Visitor Information

This tower in Jack Wood and Oxleas Wood gets its name - Severndroog or Suvarnadurg meaning 'Golden Fortress' - from the fort off the Malabar Coast to the west of India. It was built in memory of Sir William James who, as commander of the East India Company's fleet, put a stop to pirates who had been attacking ships on nearby trade routes off the west coast of India. Built in 1783 to mark the Captain's death, the 'castle' (more of a tower or folly really) sits on the highest point of Shooter's Hill. Now under the guardianship of Greenwich, it is largely closed to the public but opens occasionally and as part of London Open House weekend which takes place annually in September.
