Mortham Tower


Mortham Tower, near Greta Bridge, is a Grade I listed fortified courtyard house and pele tower which dates from the reign of King Henry VII (1485-1509). The estate was the seat of the Rokeby family, with their previous house damaged by a raid by the Scots in 1343 following the Battle of Bannockburn. Mortham Tower is now a private residence.
