PeriodPost Medieval
A round or semi-circular stone tower, with gothic openings. Once thought to be an outlying castle gatetower (see NPRN 92110) and more recently identified as a late eighteenth-early nineteenth century picturesque folly associated with Ivy Tower House (NPRN 25291). The 'Warden's Cottage' (NPRN 16395), given a gothic makeover at the same time, can be regarded as part of the same composition.
Both the house and Tower Lane are named for it.
