Burradon Tower

Tower In Burradon, Tyne And Wear

A ruined three storey tower house now mostly covered by trees.

Burradon Tower was originally a three storey tower house with a single chamber on each floor reached by a newel stair in the south east corner. The tower is believed to have been built around 1553 by Bertram Anderson and continued in occupation into the 17th century. By the 19th century the tower had become part of an adjoining farm and the lower two chambers had been made habitable by the construction of an internal tiled roof and by the early 20th century the tower stood alone in the present farm complex. The tower was conserved in 1977. (Source: Burradon Farm)

You can't get right up to the tower, but you can easily see it and take photographs from behind the wall. (If you don't mind the trees!)

In the grounds of the tower is a circular depression identified as the site of a well - rumour has it that a secret tunnel runs from here to Seaton Delaval Hall!

Thanks to David Durward, here is a photo while the trees weren't as leafy!

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue pele tower up a remote hill, a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
