Preston Tower


Preston Tower is a 14th century pele tower in Preston, near Chathill, in Northumberland. The Tower is a Grade II* listed building. "The Preston pele tower...was built between 1392 and 1399, when warfare between England and Scotland was endemic. At the time of Agincourt (1415) it was one of 78 Pele Towers in Northumberland. Its owners included Sir Guiscard Harbottle, who was slain fighting against James IV at the battle of Flodden in 1513, the conflict that brought Mary, Queen of Scots to the Scottish throne." (Preston Tower Website)
