City Daily Photo Theme Day - Stylish

Chesterton Windmill
Built in 1632, Grade I Listed


In my view:  Unique, historic and 'stylish'.


As we get closer, you can see more detail of this amazing piece of architecture.
  
The design, with those six semicircle arches,
is attributed to the famous architect, Inigo Jones.



And those views!  In this case, location really is everything.
Chesterton is only about 16 miles from Coventry
and quite near to Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

(Below) One last look before left.  A beautiful spot.

Footnote:  When we came here last Thursday, I asked Mr LOL
to take some pics with my other camera as a back up.
His enthusiasm amazed me (and with a bad back).  Well done, that man :).

What an interesting windmill. I've never seen anything like it. It looks more like a dovecote here.
