East Shaftoe Hall tower

  • Description

    "A late 13th or 14th century tower forms the earliest part of East Shaftoe Hall. It stands at the west end of a 16th century house which has 17th and 18th century alterations. The tower has walls up to 1.3m thick and in the basement there is a barrel vault. The early 16th century house seems to have been altered later that century into an 'H' strong house. In the 17th century it was altered again and became a more conventional house, and in the 18th century quite drastic alterations were made....."
