Pele Tower, Shilbottle

This former vicarage in Shilbottle incorporates a 15th century pele tower. The tower was heightened in 1863. The main part of the house, and outbuildings, were built in the 18th century, thought to be a remodelling of earlier medieval fabric. The Old Vicarage is a Grade II listed building on the National Heritage List for England.
