SO9540 : Tower on Bredon Hill

taken 14 years ago, near to Great Comberton, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Tower on Bredon Hill
Tower on Bredon Hill
Tower at the top of Bredon Hill, with some of the earthworks of the Iron Age fort visible. The tower is known as Parsons' Folly, being built in the 18th century for Mr Parsons of Kemerton. The 981ft natural height of the hill appears to have contributed to the building of the tower, whose top therefore reaches 1000ft, in the same way as the tower on Leith Hill takes it from 968ft to the magic four figures.
