The Waterloo Tower is a bell tower containing 12 bells (tenor 15 cwt) hung for change ringing. The tower is built of red brick and is c. 66 ft high. On top of the tower is a white painted cast iron spire which rises a further 65 ft.
The tower was built in 1819 by John Powell Powell. It is unique among secular bell towers for its size and location and was the first twelve-bell tower in Kent.
Quex Park today is an area of about 250 acres of farm and woodland surrounding Quex House just south of Birchington on the Isle of Thanet in Kent. The estate owns about another 1000 acres of farmland nearby growing cereals, potatoes and cauliflowers. The Quex estate is owned by a descendant of John Powell Powell, Mr Christopher Powell Cotton, who still lives in Quex House.
