The Counting House Clock Tower by phil_sandford

The Counting House Clock Tower

Another for the ‘Flash of Red’ February challenge.

This week sees the flashofred2018 challenge move to the 'rule of thirds to tell a story.'

The Counting House on Freemen’s Common in Leicester is a pub and restaurant today. The building still shows its history and the clock tower is incredibly imposing and clearly demonstrates the fascinating architecture of the building.

For more info on the Counting House and its history can be found here,_Freemen%27s_Common,

It is sat these days right on the edge of a huge superstore car park and is a popular place for both home and away fans to meet before and after a match at leicester Tigers (which is where I am this evening having had my application to attend tonight’s ‘Fan’s Forum’ approved for the first time in some years)

I like how the placement of the Tower fits the "story" of how it has stood there proud and strong all these years. Nicely done!
