It is 60 feet in height and width and and was built as an eye-catcher which it certainly is. This view is from the southern approach road to Stowe. The large columns contain two four storeyed houses in each!

The arch is a symbol of wealth and influence and the only person known to have passed through it as an entrance is Queen Victoria when it was opened.
