One of the old feudal towers, it is situated about 150 feet North of the dwelling house. There are no traditions of its Erection, or owners, to be gleaned in the locality. The remains, show it to have been square in form, like most of the towers in this County, it is now on three sides but a couple of feet in height (the fourth or south side being nearly level with the ground) and serves the purpose of a Sheepshelter.
