Broadway Tower



1 April 2002












We set out to look round St Eadburgha’s Church, near Broadway


















But after walking round the outside, found that it was locked





We bought some snowdrop bulbs from the house opposite, and were told that there had been a theft from the church recently








We decided to drive on instead to Broadway Tower






An 18th century folly built for his wife by the Earl of Coventry, Broadway Tower commands views of some 13 counties




Nowadays, the grounds also accommodate an adventure playground and farm park






Some shaggy inhabitants of the latter




During the war, the site was occupied by the Royal Observer Corps









Juliet in an observation post





From the top, the visitors look down on Roger










Juliet bids farewell
