Artist's Description

Tyndale Monument

Number of views as of 9th May 2016 = 2900.

On the Cotswold Way, between Wotton-under-Edge and North Nibley (Gloucestershire, England) stands this monument to William Tyndale (1492 – 1536), who translated the New Testament of the Bible into English.

The monument was built in 1866 and is 111 feet (34 metres) tall. Inside the monument, a narrow, circular staircase of 121 steps (I know ’cos I counted them) ascends to a viewing platform offering fine views over the village of North Nibley and surrounding countryside.

Tyndale was born in Gloucestershire, educated at Oxford and became a leading figure in Protestant reform which led to his untimely demise. He was arrested and jailed in the castle of Vilvoorde, near Brussels, charged and convicted of heresy, executed by strangulation and his body was burnt at the stake.

[Hope I don’t suffer the same fate for extracting the above info from Wikipedia!]

Date: 17th February 2013.
