Ivy Tower in Clyne Valley Country Park
Ivy Tower in Clyne Valley Country Park
This tower is right beside the lane up to the lodge. There are 2 arched entrances, away from the lane. I couldn't see any other walls or gates.
I was always told it was a chimney from the old arsenic and copper works but the ground-level entrances and internal staircase never seemed to agree with this interpretation.
I have since found that this tower is part of Scheduled Ancient Monument GM475. The schedule document states that the chimney was "gothicised" in the late 19th Century to become a folly for Clyne Castle.
