1760, Grade II listed, Folly used as a signal tower. Frustrating to be able to access top of the tower, but not the roof where the Bolt presumably sits.

A lovely view from the top of the tower but the roof was not accessible.

Fine hill and tower on a two TuMP walk across Ham Hill Country Park. With Douglas and Smudge.

it is possible to get to the top of the inside of the tower but the last ten feet to the actual top on the outside are protected by a padlocked grill.
