taken 1 year ago, near to Theberton, Suffolk, Great Britain

Round tower to St Peter's Church
Round tower to St Peter's Church
The cylindrical part of the tower at Theberton is 38ft (13m) high and the Decorated octagonal top stage with its Y-tracery, flushwork and battlements takes the overall height to 57ft (20m), not including the flagpole with its St George cross. Four grotesque gargoyles with iron tubes in their mouths spew rainwater well clear of the walls. Pevsner assigns the base of the tower to the Norman period but Bill Goode asserts that is Saxon, arguing that the walls are "much too thin to have been built by Normans"; also that the construction "of uncoursed flints, speaks loudly of a pre-Conquest date." Munro Cautley is silent on the issue. There are six bells.
