Great shot, Suze. What and where it that? Do you know any history on it? It is obviously very old. This is one of those photos that is begging to tell a story.

Cal, It's actually part of a 500+ year old castle near where I live. I visit there on a regular basis(waiting for the gardens to bloom in full ) but never noticed this chimney before.It is inside the walls and can be seen from the courtyard * I have posted a few pics of this castle a while back so the histroy may be a repeat for any that remember it.

Edward Stafford, the third Duke of Buckingham, received a royal licence to build this 'fortified manor' or castle-palace in 1510. Work started the following year but stopped in 1521 when the Duke was executed on trumped-up charges of treason. In 1535 King Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, stayed here. Princess Mary, later Queen Mary I, also lived here for several years.Today, much still remains of the original 16th century building which is used as a hotel. The church, located just outside the castle walls, is still in use.

Also, a few fresh pics of the castle follow (since you got me started LOL). The church is really incredible too but I shall save those photos for another thread.

The chimney is something else!

Really good to see it.
