Parsons Tower, Ford
Parsons Tower is a 14th century stone tower house to the south-west of Ford Castle. It was the home of the resident parson. The square tower shows traces of later attached buildings in its stonework. It now stands to the height of the first floor and the basement is covered by a barrel vault, enclosing a single chamber. It was damaged in 1513 and repaired in 1541 to make a vicar's pele.
