The ruins of this tower or fort is situated at the South-west Corner of the buildings of Lee: and is associated in the district with no traditionary interest. It is thought to have been one of the Ancient feudal Strongholds - but respecting the date of its erection, or anything Connected with its history, tradition is silent.
It is Square in form & two storeys high, having several loop-holes in its sides. It is used for a farm office & since the dismantelment, has been roofed a few feet lower than its original height - the roof has now fallen in partly, & in winter it is used for a Cattle Shelter.
