taken 12 years ago, near to Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Clopton House Tower
Clopton House Tower
This octagonal three storey building, complete with battlements, sits on the hill overlooking Stratford-upon-Avon. The Clopton family were benefactors of Stratford-upon-Avon from around the time of Shakespeare's father. The tower was designed as a belvedere for Clopton House and has been described as either "the smallest castle or grandest cottage in England"! The building was carefully converted into a private house in the 1990's, and a new section has been added in identical style complete with matching stone and battlements.
