Tower Window

The Tower Garden, named after, yes the tower, in its corner of which this is one of the windows.  When it was built (sometime just before 1750) it was at at the boundary of Tatton Hall, its purpose, to watch for sheep stealing in the park, now it is just part of a peaceful yew hedged garden.

The statue is of Fame, the hundred tongued Roman goddess of news and rumour.

You have so beautiful photos! I absolutely love your part of England; I spent 5 months at Capernwray Hall near Carnforth in 1972/73. It's a lovely area, as is the Lake District :-)
