SP4241 : Folly

taken 17 years ago, near to Drayton, Oxfordshire, England

This purely decorative arch stands in a clump of trees on the plateau above the Sor Brook valley and is not immediately obvious from any direction - it may have been less overshadowed in the past, or perhaps a 'surprise' folly. It is associated with Wroxton Abbey and has been variously attributed to Sanderson Miller 1750 or David Hiorn 1771. The trees visible beyond the arch are on the other side of the valley.
