Manchester’s Beetham Tower.

Thursday 01 January 1970

Manchester’s Beetham Tower.

Spare a thought in this cold and windy weather for the residents of Beetham Tower.
Beetham Tower in Manchester, England, has a reputation for howling, humming and whistling every time the wind picks up.
The skyscraper is irritating residents due to a ghastly howling noise it makes every time the wind blows because of a glass blade built at the top.

The blade on the south side of the building which is thought to cause the howling during windy weather acts as a façade overrun, accentuating its slim form and it also doubles as a lightning rod.The hum has been recorded as a B below middle C and gets louder the harder the wind blows.

The 47-floor structure is one of the thinnest skyscrapers in the world, with a height to width ratio of 12:1 on the east-west facade.
