376 Wybunbury

Cheshire's very own Leaning Tower of Pisa still stands proud above the village of Wybunbury, outliving the rebuilding of no less than five attendant churches. Built on shifting sand only a century after Italy's more famous version, the 120ft tower has been straightened several times. In 1969 they had a spring clean and discovered a hoard of ancient silver, including a Charles II Tankard which was sold to pay for the new church. So why not have a tidy up? You never know what you might find!
