Paxton's Tower
The Tower was built sometime between 1805 and 1808 probably to a design by Samuel Pepys Cockerell. It is a triangular building, two storeys high, with a hexagonal castellated roof. On the ground there are three arches (to accommodate carriages). On the next storey there was a banqueting room and on the upper storey a prospect room, with an upper apartment with stained glass windows showing Lord Nelson and scenes from his life.
The tower was originally called Nelsonís Tower and was dedicated to Admiral Nelson, a friend of William Paxton, after his death at Trafalgar in October 1805.
