Tom Tower, Oxford
Number of views as of 9th September 2013 = 400.
Tom Tower (Oxford, England) stands over the main entrance of Christ Church college and houses the loudest (and probably heaviest) bell in the city, Great Tom, weighing in at 6.25 tons.
The square tower with its octagonal lantern and facetted dome was designed by Christopher Wren and built in 1681–82 by stonemason Christopher Kempster of Burford.
This photograph was taken from the tower of St Mary’s University Church, which provides some of the finest views of the city’s ‘dreaming spires’.
