Where Is This? – Numbers 10 & 11

The solution to last weeks Picture Number 10 –


This is a turret of tower twenty-eight – the only surviving tower along the entire walls section from Robin Hood’s Tower to Monk Bar. The tower is semicircular in plan measuring approx. four metres wide and projecting two metres from the wall face. Although the lower part of this tower appears to be original the upper part was rebuilt in 1889 with small turrets added on each side producing a structure Victorian in character. Internally the tower contains brick arches supported on concrete beams with some stone flagging to carry the platform.
