16th Century Freston Tower

When in the River Orwell, this place makes for an interesting stop off. I like the sandy beach, the trees roll down to the water's edge and of course there's that magnet of intrigue, Freston Tower, sitting up on the hill. This six story red brick folly is thought to have been built in the 16th century and one legend has it each floor was dedicated to the study of a different subject for six days of the week. I guess they went sailing on the seventh...

This photograph is really universal - it sums up that part of the world where the land and sea meet - and it is pretty special wherever you go.
