The "Saxon" tower was designed by James Wyatt in 1794 to resemble a mock castle, and built for Lady Coventry in 1799. The tower was built on a "beacon" hill, where beacons were lit on special occasions. Lady Coventry wondered if a beacon on this hill could be seen from her house in Worcester — approximately 22 miles (35 km) away — and sponsored the construction of the folly to find out. The beacon could be seen clearly.

Near the tower is a memorial to the crew of an A.W.38 Whitley bomber that crashed there during a training mission in June 1943.

A very interesting structure of stone. I love the way you have caught
the light on the face of the building…….

Infatuation with a woman can lead to the most charming of towers and castles. This is a fantastic little beauty with the balconies, special windows and overall fairyland design. TG

Thanks, Jocelia. It's nice that you appreciate the light. A polarising filter helped. The stone soaks up the sun...

Tony, it's rather special, eh? I'm glad the weather was kind. A visit was long overdue...
