...this is the "Tattingstone Wonder", a folly. It was built in 1790 by Edward White, who lived at the nearby Tattingstone Place. The story goes that he wanted to see a church from his house windows. He said that "People often wondered at nothing, so he would give them something to wonder about".
From the back of the house one can see that the so-called tower is actually a built up chimney stack. The folly is now a grade II* building and has been converted into a single residence.
The garden of the Tattingstone Wonder - I liked the old car, the greenhouse and the childs bicycle....
...and finally Snowy, found sleeping where she should not be....my Hawaiian applique in its Ikea bag!
