One of the biggest in 1078, he became the Tower. Wooden fort replaced the huge stone building - the Grand Tower of London, which is a quadrangular building, measuring 32 x 36 meters, about 30 meters high. Later, when the new King of England ordered to whitewash the building, it was called the White Tower (White Tower), or White Tower. Later, when King Richard the Lionheart, were built several towers of different heights, and two rows of powerful walls. Around the fortress was dug deep ditch, making it one of the most impregnable fortresses in Europe.
