Ardglass tower crafted in sugar

A Co Down landmark has been immortalised in a novel substance more often found in tea than in architecture.

Isabella's Tower, the 19th century folly located in Ardglass, has been crafted by acclaimed sculptor Brendan Jamison.

Brendan, who made headlines with his sugar sculpture of 10 Downing Street - currently in the Prime Minister's front room - applied his sweet skills to Ardglass after receiving a commission from a Belfast couple with fond memories of the seaside village.

Brendan, who has an honours degree in fine art, has previously recreated Bangor Town Hall and Helen's Tower in sugar cubes.
