WALTHAM CROSS
Temple Bar
TL 350 020                  1672/1878
Now restored to its rightful place near St Paul's in London, this was taken when it was a folly in Theobalds Park.

For more details, see the earlier Picture Calls in this series. If you need further assistance in locating the buildings (for example, where's the sham ruin in Benington?) please email gwyn.headley@heritage.co.uk with a list of up to six of these follies at a time that you would like to photograph, and he will do his best to help by sending you the relevant texts from the book.
