Tosson Tower


Tosson Tower is a ruined medieval tower house located in Great Tosson. It was the home of the Ogle family, who obtained lands at Tosson in the 1330s, and had possession of the whole township by 1386. In 1517 William Ogle is recorded as giving Tosson Tower to Lord Ogle in exchange for Cocklaw Tower. In 1522 Lord Ogle then leased it to a local landowner, William Gallon.[1] Tosson tower is a Grade II* listed building.
