Often incorrectly described as a pele tower, this is a 15th C fortified tower that is the only surviving part of the manor house of the Wybergh family. It was plundered by Jacobites in 1745 before the Battle of Clifton Moor, often claimed to be the last battle fought on English soil. You can see where other parts of the building once joined the tower. there are no upper floors, but a spiral staircase leads to a gallery so that you can see the construction. The tower is in the middle of a working farm; park in the village, not on or over the farm access road.
