Kinley Hill Tower
Kinley Hill Tower
The listed building is a late C18 or early C19 gazebo in the form of a squat tower made of random limestone rubble with sandstone window surrounds. Derelict but relatively intact in 2004 it suffered collapse during a storm in 2006. Work is currently in progress to underpin its walls with concrete and rebuild its ruined walls.
A photograph prior to its collapse is shown here LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
Kinley Hill Tower

Built in the 1830's by Major George Anderson as a folly or eyecatcher from Hawthorn Tower. The structure is in the revived Gothick style of the Georgian period. At some point the building may have been fitted out as a summer house for the Anderson estate. Later in the 19th century or possibly early 20th century the building appears to have been used as a residence LinkExternal link
