(Former) pele tower, The Centre of Britain Hotel, Main Street

  • Description

    "The Haltwhistle Town Trail http://www.visithaltwhistle.org/border-reivers.html says that "The Centre of Britain Hotel has a three storey frontage to the Main Street. The slightly projecting eastern bay is a rare example of a fortified urban tower believed to date from the 16th century. Unusually, the tower features an anti-clockwise staircase concealed within the exterior wall. The north and east of the tower has a plain corbelled parapet. Within the parapet is a gabled cap - house similar to some which appear in Scottish towers." See also [[2872669]]." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2012.
