Ponteland Vicar's Pele
Tower In Ponteland, Northumberland
A ruined Vicar's Pele sitting on the main high street in Ponteland.
Situated on the main through road in Ponteland is a three storey Vicars Pele tower.
Standing on the site of a 13th century hall house, it's believed the south wing may have been rebuilt as the tower in the 14th to 15th century. It then became part of a vicarage before it was demolished in the 19th century.
There was still a small house attached to it, but this was removed in 1950 leaving the tower as what you see today.
How To Find Ponteland Vicar's Pele

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 or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.More Places from Simon
