Ninebanks Tower

UK»England»Northumberland»Ninebanks Tower

Ninebanks Tower: The tower is all that remains above ground level of a once much larger house, as it was originally attached to the eastern gable of an earlier building. The tower is thought to have functioned as a lookout tower as its slight dimensions mean it is unlikely to have served as a defensible structure. It is rectangular in shape and measures 3.6m by 4m externally, with walls of rubble and dressed stone on average 0.5m thick. The tower, now roofless, stands four storeys high but it is thought that the topmost floor is a later addition.
