Beauchamp Tower

One of the main towers in the Tower of London. Goodman (140) tells us it was built around 1300 and remained nameless until 1397, when Thomas Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, was imprisoned there and his name thereby became associated with it. It was used as a place of confinement for high ranking prisoners. Rudolph Hess, Hitler’s henchman, spent time there, too.
