Woodhall Spa, Tower on the Moor: aerial 2012
Woodhall Spa, Tower on the Moor: aerial 2012
There are theories that it was built as a lookout, for defence purposes, or for fun (like a folly), but the most convincing theory is that it is the remains of a hunting lodge - see LinkExternal link

The "Moor" is now a golf course. A good place to view the tower from the ground is from the footpath along the old railway track.
