TOWER HOUSE

DESCRIPTION + /

Three storeyed 15th century tower, now incorporated into a mid 20th century dwelling, the remains of the abbot's lodgings to Buckland Abbey. The tower appears to have formed the north east corner of a larger building. It has angled buttresses on its outer corners and another buttress on the north side. At second floor level the north and east faces are framed in unique decorative friezes that include small flowers. A pentagonal stair turret projects from the south side and extends above the embattled roof to form a turret. The ground floor is set into the rising ground to the south east. There is a blocked door on the north side and, internally, a blocked arch leading eastward into an underground space.
