Parsons Tower is a 14th century stone tower house. The square tower, has a chamfered plinth and shows traces of later attached buildings in its stonework. Standing to the height of the first floor, the basement is covered by a barrel vault and its thick walls enclose a single chamber. Damaged in 1513, Sir Cuthbert Ogle had two storeys of the tower repaired in 1541, to make a vicar's pele.
