DURIE HILL TOWER…

This tower was built as a memorial to the 513 people from the district who died in the First World War.  It is built with cemented marine sandstone from a nearby quarry.  Unfortunately this tower is 104 feet high with a spiral of 176 steps to the top, and with my fear of heights I haven’t been able to photograph the view from the top… The sandstone is estimated to be more than 2 million years old.

 

TIME OUT…

Please forgive me friends.  Grief has hit me harder than I thought, and my muse has left for parts unknown.  When I pick up my pen or my brush all I find is mud… So I am taking a break for a while until I am through this.  Love

Just want to say that I have been overwhelmed by your support.  You are a wonderful community and I thank you for your love and prayers ❤
