Description"Like the other towers on this westerly section of the wall, it is semi-circular in plan, with a rectangular ground floor, with 3 loops (slit windows). In 1619-20 the tower was leased by the Company of Plumbers, Glaziers and Pewterers, who converted it into their meeting house, and made many alterations including the addition of an upper storey. Morden tower has had many uses in modern times. It became famous as a venue for literary readings and gatherings since 1964. Poets who have read there include Basil Bunting, Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney and Allen Ginsberg." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
