Alton Towers before the roller-coasters

“Alton Castle from the west, an early colour photograph made by Longton (Stoke-on-Trent) photographer William Blake in 1937. Originally a 12th century castle, Alton Castle was rebuilt as a large Gothic-style house between 1847 and 1852 to designs by A.W.N. Pugin.”
