CLIFTON HALL


CLIFTON TOWER

A small Pele tower, only 30 feet square but three storeys high, was added to a 14th century hall house in about 1500. Other buildings were added over the next 100 years but these have now all been destroyed. The tower was twice captured during the Jacobean uprisings of the 18th Century. The interior has been strengthened and the stairs are still usable.

English Heritage, open all year.
