Photographer's Note

Beckford's Tower is an architectural folly built in neo-classical style and situated on Lansdown Hill, just outside Bath, Somerset, England.

This is the view over Bath that Beckford would have had walking around his grounds. His grave lies in this area as well as many other ancient graves.

Bath
The city is founded around the only naturally-occurring hot springs in the United Kingdom. It was first documented as a Roman spa, although tradition suggests that it was founded earlier. The waters from its spring were believed to be a cure for many afflictions. From Elizabethan to Georgian times it was a resort city for the wealthy. As a result of its popularity during the latter period, the city contains many fine examples of Georgian architecture, most notably the Royal Crescent. The city has a population of over 80,000 and is a World Heritage Site.

I have other images of Bath and Beckfords Toweer in my gallery if you wish to see more.
