      I had to look it up, but a folly it surely is! Looks like a doll's house for a castle. Splendid portrait, Hamish.

      Did you go manage to go inside, last time I went there was all sorts of information about either the Pre Raphaelites or the Arts and Crafts Movement.
      Beautiful shot.

      I didn't go inside, if it had been an exceptionally clear day I might have paid the £4 to go in, but I have been in about six times in the last 28years.

      Last time I was here back in the winter, the wind picked up and i had great difficulty in getting the kite down, including at times not being able to get it down

      £4.00!! I don't even remember paying to go in, but we might put that down to my memory. It was about ten years ago (I think).
      Think that would have been a bit scary up on that hill with the wind picking up and you hanging on to the kite.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Broadway Tower, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      This is brilliant. Great to see the Tower from this angle.

      My 7 yr old would love this! I think it's cool too....might be a decorating nightmare though!
