Sallyport Tower

  • Description

    "Walknoll, Sallyport or (Ships) Carpenters' Tower was originally a tower on the C14 Town Wall which had been realigned to include the district of Pandon. It was constructed around 1307 at a point on a small hill where the wall changed direction and was rectangular rather than the usual D-shape of the other wall towers. In 1716 the Shipwrights' Company enlarged the tower, and built a hall on the first floor with access by stairs at the East end. The Company retained it until the mid-C19 after which it had a number of uses and was rescued from dereliction and possibly demolition in the 1960s. It is a Grade I, Listed Building."
