Artist's Description

Super Large View

Wainman’s Tower / Cowling Pinnacle, an old tapering solid structure. There are a number of possible suggestions as to its existence – a memorial to Lady Amcott’s husband, who died in the Civil War; erected by Richard Wainman to mark the defeat of Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo in 1815; or a memorial to his son, who died in the Napoleonic War. By the latter part of the 19th century the pinnacle had become severely damaged by lightning, as a result of which it was demolished and rebuilt in January 1900 by Messrs. Gott and Riddiough of Cowling !
