Description
Remains of the lower parts of a rectangular structure, 13.2m N-S by 8.2m, thought to have been a first-floor hall/tower, set on a rocky knoll, c.80m NE of Oxwich Castle.
(source: RCAHMW 2000, 493)
It can be suggested that this structure was associated with the park/gardens of the castle (Nprn265709), rather than representing a precursor.
Comparison/contrast might be made with the prospect towers associated with e.med. parks at St Donat's (Nprn23087, 37674).
Associated with:
Oxwich Castle (Nprn19554)
Park/gardens (Nprn265709).
