taken 12 years ago, near to Linton, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Fountaine Hospital and Sundial, Linton
Fountaine Hospital and Sundial, Linton
The Fountaine Hospital (almshouses) was built as directed by the will (dated 1721) of Richard Fountaine. Its design is clearly influenced by Sir John Vanbrugh, but the architect is not known. The cupola and urns are perhaps a little top-heavy, but that is a matter of taste. The sundial on the village green was awarded by the News Chronicle in 1949, when Linton was judged to be the "Loveliest village in the North"
