Shugborough Estate #31

The Tower of the Winds, a replica horlogium (water clock) was completed in 1765 by Trubshaw of Great Haywood.
Previously used as a dairy (downstairs) and as a gambling den (upstairs) it was reached by bridges to the porches over a surrounding lake (now drained).
Despite no longer in active use, there was an overwhelming feel of history to this rather unique building.
