Comprising cylindrical towers inspired by Turkish-style minarets, complete with parapets, this romantic folly was designed in 1833-34 by Alexander Fraser for Hugh Fraser Leslie of Powis. The piers are topped by conical slate caps crowned with golden orbs and crescent finials. Just next to King’s college!
