Todmorden, England, United Kingdom

There is clearly an architectural break between the lower part of the tower, whose Anglo-Saxon origin is clear enough to anyone who knows anything at all, and the top part [belfry] which is clearly newer though still very old. I could not have dated this top part to the end of the 11th century with any confidence although I am sure the judgement that it must be dated to the Saxon/Norman overlap period is perfectly sound. Anyway the whole thing is a gem.
