HODs – Cresswell Pele Tower
September 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Opportunity to visit this recently restored 14th century Pele Tower, together with a walled garden in the early stages of restoration. Photo below shows tower pre restoration…
The generosity of the Heritage Lottery Fund and other funders combined with the skilled craftsmanship of Historic Property Restoration Ltd and the work of dedicated local volunteers enabled the Pele Tower to be restored between Oct 2019 – Mar 2021. A badly vandalised, roofless ruin has been transformed into a fantastic historic building for current and future generations to visit, enjoy and admire. It has been removed from Historic England’s “Heritage at Risk” register and is now a local, regional and national heritage asset which we can all be extremely proud of.
Alternative viewing date: 13.00-16.00 Sun 19th Sept
Location: Cresswell, Morpeth, NE61 5JY
Access: some steep & difficult stairs to climb within the tower.
Notes: no unaccompanied children and no dogs are allowed within the tower.
