architectural impossibility

wren's impossible gatehouse

Sir Christopher Wren designed the tower over the gate into Christchurch College. I heard from someone it was an architectural impossibility, you couldn't support so much weight on such a wide arch. It's not fallen over yet, though, even though all of St Aldate's is sinking into the silt.

There are five more pingo-cam + bug-eye lens photos over on the photostream.
