[Note] From enquiry lately made in the locality concerning
this object and from the remarks of, late topographical
writers it appears to be the general belief that it is
the remains of Some baronial residence the owner
of which is long since forgotten. The remains at present
existing is that of a circular tower about 15 feet high
and which originally must have been much higher.
Therefore Tower (Remains of) is now recommended to
be written on plan.
