If you seek a Landmark in Europe, we offer six wonderful Landmarks in Italy. Several English Landmarks share the Moulin’s connection with the British royal family.
Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned at Staffordshire’s Tixall Hall in 1586 for her role in the Babington Plot. ‘I have nothing for you,’ she said to local beggars, weeping through Tixall Gatehouse. ‘I am a beggar as well as you, all is taken from me.’ Tixall Hall has long since been demolished but the gatehouse survives as a popular Landmark for six in the Staffordshire countryside.
Henry III, Edward I and his wife Margaret, Edward II and his wife Isabella have all stayed at Cawood Castle, the principal palace of the Archbishops of York. Henry VIII and his wife Catherine Howard stayed years after Cardinal Wolsey, Henry’s Lord Chancellor, had been arrested there for treason on Henry’s orders after failing to secure a divorce that would allow Henry to marry Anne Boleyn. The late medieval rooms in the gatehouse are all that survive of the original castle and form a popular Landmark for four in North Yorkshire.
Appleton Water Tower sits on the edge of the Sandringham Estate, the private home to four generations of British monarchs since 1862. Queen Victoria deemed a clean water supply essential after Edward, Prince of Wales fell ill with typhoid while staying at Sandringham, as did his eldest son three years later. Queen Victoria’s beloved husband Prince Albert had died from the same disease at Windsor Castle. Today Landmarkers enjoy 360 degree views across the Norfolk landscape from the top of the restored tower.
