Observe The Mystery


Here is another shot of the Cheltenham Ladies College. This is the Observatory that can be seen in Tuesdays photo. The photo is taken from The Promenade, through two other buildings. The street it is actually on is just a minor thorough fair, rarely used. I'm sure that many Cheltonions don't know this tower, with its clock and copper dome, even exists. All I know is the building is built in a French-Gothic style. I've tried to find out more about it using the Internet and books about Cheltenhams history, but to no avail. I guess I'll have to visit the Ladies to find out more. If anyone knows anything about it please let me know.

Interesting looking building. I bet you would get a good view of the city from the top of it.

Interesting! It looks like a kind of Germanic onion dome.

Reminds me of Enid Blyton's Famous Five books. They always had strange going ons in towers and castles.
