The Marlborough Tower

The Marlborough Tower was used as an observatory and from the top of the tower it was possible to communicate with the palace through light signals! It was from here that the boat-rides would take off; ever since Louis XIV's time it had been popular to go on boat rides along the canals in the park and some courtiers even had their own boats. The royal family's fishing equipment was stored here as well.
