I was asked if I’d write about a favourite building for the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings magazine. I love industrial buildings that have been given a new use so I thought about the grand Musée d’Orsay in Paris or The Granary at King’s Cross in London, now a university campus. At the other end of the scale, I was tempted by this tiny building at Lincolns Inn.
But in the end I decided to look at something much closer to home – an ancient Norman tower on the edge of my home village. You can read my appreciation of St Leonard’s Tower here and find out more about SPAB here.
