The Tower at St. Andrews Church Colne Engaine
The Tower at St. Andrews Church Colne Engaine, taken 8 years ago
The sarsen stones in the tower are sandstone boulders brought down by ice in the glacial period, and were probably previously used as ritual marker stones in a Stone Age temple on the site. Some of the other building material came from a Roman villa nearby. The church dates back to the early twelfth century and the reign of Henry I.
