MOW COP CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Mow Cop Castle was constructed as a folly in 1754 of sandstone rubble. It straddles the border of the counties of Cheshire and Staffordshire. The largest portion of the building is a round tower with porthole and arched windows, to which is attached a large pointed arch. The hilltop and folly were used as an open air meeting area for the Primitive Methodist movement in the mid to late 19th centuries, attracting over 70,000 people on the centenary of the first assembly.
