Stokesay Castle, Shropshire: the medieval great hall and south tower with the Jacobean gatehouse on the left

NOTES: Completed at the end of the 13th century by the wool merchant, Lawrence of Ludlow, this is an important example of one of the earliest fortified houses of England. The gatehouse was added in 1640.

St Mary's Church, Pembridge, Herefordshire: the detached octagonal-shape belfry with truncated pyramidal roof

NOTES: Unique in England and akin to the bell houses of Swedish stave churches, this belfry was restored in 1898 and 1957 when extra timbers were inserted and the bases of the upright timbers were strengthened with concrete. In 1983-1984 the tower underwent a complete restoration.
