Tyne and Wear HER(1551): Newcastle town wall, Carliol Tower

  • Description

    "Carliol Tower stood at the north-east angle of the wall's circuit. It was of the usual semi-circular plan, but was 2 storeys in height instead of the normal one. The upper room was also rib-vaulted. It is thought to have seen action in the 1644 siege, cannon balls and skeletons having been found close by in the ditch. From the late 16th century the tower was held by the Weavers Company, who repaired and altered it on a number of occasions...."
