On a gloomy day in the Southern Cotswolds we visited Cricklade, a small town in Northern Wiltshire. We were amazed by the size and magnificence of the church, St Sampson's - the tower was outstanding!

Here is a view looking directly upwards (as far as my neck would allow). The second image shows the context.

The website says: "The very impressive and massive tower took 50 years to build and was begun in the early 16th century and, after remaining partly built for some years, was completed in the early 1550s financed by the Duke of Northumberland."

The church cat surprised me by appearing from its bed as I walked around thinking that just Sandra and I were in the church - the loud "meowww" caught me off my guard!
