Imperial Monumental Halls and Tower London
Design for an Imperial Monumental Halls and Tower in London by Edward Buckton Lamb and John Seddon, 1904 (RIBA Collections)

Several schemes were considered in the late-ninenteenth century to expand Westminster Abbey in central London. It was felt the church had become too crowded with monuments and more space was needed.

John Pollard Seddon and Edward Beckitt Lamb found the solution in adding a huge Memorial Tower to the abbey that would have been the tallest building in the United Kingdom at the time.
