  1. Lovely pictures of an interesting walk up the hill to the tower, It is curious to see so many trees with more than one trunk. I wonder if the woodland was originally for coppicing? I also wonder what the tower was protecting. There must be a good story there somewhere.

  2. It’s an observatory. The hole is so that you can view the sky above as it passes, and from a darker perspective. It’s only about 200 years old, maybe a little more.
    It was built by the Lord that owned the land at the time. He got bored and left, apparently.
