Little Swinburne Tower

Tower In Swinburne, Northumberland

A severely ruined 15th century tower in Little Swinburne.

Another little fabulous find during our exploration of this area is the Little Swinburne Tower.

Situated just past a farm and on the Reivers cycle route this 15th century tower is definitely in need of some TLC. Most of the tower is in ruin with the front looking like it has been split in two by a bolt of lightning.

We couldn't find much about the tower other that its highest point stands at 30 feet tall and some of the walls are up to 5 feet thick. It would also have once been part of a larger complex as there have been earthworks discovered in the surrounding area.

Careful as you go as it's in a bit of a precarious state.

It has a canny view and a nearby friend too!

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.
