Ludworth Tower

  • Description

    "Lesley Cranston. Robert Surtees (1779-1834) in his 'History and Antiquities of the County Palatinate of Durham' describes the tower thus: A dark gloomy pile, resembling one of the lowest class of border fortresses. It consists of an oblong square tower of rude masonry, built of the common limestone of the county, and the interior is divided into a vaulted dungeon and an upper chamber lighted by a few narrow casements. The only entrance is by a small arched door communicating with a spiral stone staircase projected from NW corner of the tower." Photo by GRAEME and LESLEY CRANSTON, 2006.
