This evening I went out for a drive around some country lanes around Kendal and Milnthorpe in the hopes of getting an image of some hay bales. There were lots wrapped up in black plastic and I assume that early in the day is the time for this as the farmers aren’t going to want the hay bales left out unprotected overnight with chances of rain so I might get lucky with that one tomorrow.
Anyway, this is a panorama shot looking at St. Anthony’s Tower which sits on the hill above Milnthorpe, here’s what English Heritage have to say about it;
SD 48 SE MILNTHORPE A6 (off East side)
3/1 St Anthony’s Tower
approx.150 m East
of A6 North of
Folly in shape of Tower. Probably early C19 (recorded as in existence by
1832). Stone rubble with dressed stone corniced parapet. Circular plan. 2
storeys. 5 window openings, not glazed with roughly cut lintels and cills and
and doors approached by flight of external steps at first floor. Ground floor
has window opening to south and slit openings to remaining sides. Visible as
landscape feature from some considerable distance all round, notably from Dallam
Towers whose owner in 1832 prevented any further extension of the development
along Church Street in Milnthorpe so that his view of the folly from his house
was not obscured. Further information: CURWEN, J F History of Heversham with
Milnthorpe, pub. Titus Wilson 1930, p11.
