    Arnside Tower

    A visit to one of my childhood playgrounds today.



    Arnside Tower - Cumbria

    "Arnside Tower was built in the second half of the 15th century; tower houses were then often built in the insecure areas of northern England and southern Scotland.Constructed of limestone rubble, the tower was originally five storeys high, measuring 50 feet by 34 feet. The tower was built with an adjacent wing of equal height built onto the side of the tower in a style common in Scotland, but rare in English tower houses."

    Delusions of adequacy.

    It's only just out of town. From the prom with the water on your right - leave town up the winding hill towards Arnside Knott and Silverdale. The tower is a few minutes drive on your left.
