Located some six miles south of Ipswich the Tattingstone Wonder was originally two cottages. In 1790 Edward White,[a] the local squire, did not like his view of the cottages from Tattingstone Place. He decided to add a third cottage and finished them to look like a church by adding a fake tower and flint façade. It has become a famous Suffolk landmark.[not in citation given]
