Gothic Tower by Karen  Betts

Taken at the Wimpole Estate, In Cambridgeshire, National Trust 29.7.09

This Gothic Tower sits upon a hill in the Park Land of Wimpole Estate which is a property owned by the Nationial Trust. You can see this Tower from the bakc gardens of the House. Im can tell you no more about it, as there was not any imformation boards beside it. When you turn and face away from the Tower looking back over towards the House below you are greeted by a wonderful view of the English countryside for as far as your eye can see.

    OH Karen, this place is so cool and you captured it well..Look at those windows..awesome shot.

  • Thank Kim the minute i saw it i thought of the story Rapunzel, and imagined her trapped at the top and throwing down her golden hair for the prince to rescue her. Have some close ups of the windows but not sure if they are good enough to upload will see.
