Britain from A to Z - T

Our main photos today depicting places beginning with the letter T, are the Thames River and the Tower of London. We do however start with a Tithe Barn!
Tithe Barn Interior
The Tithe Barn in the village of Lacock, Wiltshire, England. The village is owned almost in its entirety by the National Trust, and attracts many visitors by virtue of its unspoiled appearance. 
The Tithe Barn, in the heart of the historic village is a limestone barn with a raised-cruck roof and a very long wagon porch. 
The village, which dates from the 13th century has many limewashed half-timbered and stone houses.
We now move up to the Thames, first showing it at Marlow and Henley, before moving downstream to London, where it is crossed by Tower Bridge.

Tower Bridge
London's Tower Bridge is one of the most recognizable bridges in the world. Its Victorian Gothic style stems from a law that forced the designers to create a structure that would be in harmony with the nearby Tower of London. It was built 120 years ago to ease road traffic while maintaining river access to the busy Pool of London docks. Built with giant moveable roadways that lift up for passing ships, it is to this day, considered as a great feat of Victorian engineering.
