The Round Tower, Sandiway
The Round Tower, Sandiway
Travellers on the A556, Chester Road, Sandiway, will recognise this prominent local landmark near the junction with Norley Road. The Round Tower, more properly and traditionally known as The Round Lodge, was built circa 1816 of Cheshire sandstone as a gate lodge to the nearby Vale Royal Estate. It became stranded in the central reservation, as seen here from the eastbound view towards Speedwell, when the road was expanded to dual carriageway during the 1930's. Original carriageway is the one on the left.
