Taken during a brief break in the clouds yesterday. The golden ball on top of the church tower of St Lawrence West Wycombe. It was built in the 18th century for Sir Francis Dashwood and infamous for its association with the Hell Fire Club which met in the church and caves beneath. The ball call hold 6-8 people seated and commands views for miles around and is believed to have been used for members of the Hell Fire Club as a lookout. The building is front is the Mausoleum holding the graves of the Dashwood family.
