Friday Finery: Hexagonal arcaded tower

Admittedly the latest in our occasional series of Friday Finery will need a little work to turn it into a fully fledged garden office, but the potential is there for all to see. It's what Lassco call "an Oxford spire", a Victorian hexagonal arcaded tower made from oak, pine and lead which last saw service on the Walter Bodmer Building at the University of Oxford before it was, totally legally, salvaged. Features include that spired roof, copper lightening conductor (not something you see every day on a garden office), lead cap and cedar shingles, with an arcaded cupola around a central post and lead-covered base-plate. It comes in at 5m hight by 1.85m wide (excluding lightening conductor).
