Reputed to be an unfriendly landowner, so we didn't fancy the shotguns or the heavy rain today - will return at some point when feeling braver.

After reading Painterman's log we decided not to do anymore than take a photo at distance!

Trespassed to this off the PROW, took a risk gambled owner would possibly be in pub approached from the blind side from tower farm where the gun toting owner lives,be warned if he sees you he wont think twice of firing in your direction all the locals know about him. Nice evening could just about see what i thought was block just over wall but did not risk climbing wall in full view of farmhouse.The tower is in bad nick with a bad crack running down one side with warning signs to keep out high mark due to brilliant views from here,will revisit in summer at crack of dawn to get good look easiest access is on the main road near the bad bend there is a stile here.

you will have to be determined to get this one as the owner is very defensive

Have to record this one as possibly missing as access to the the tower is strongly discouraged by the current landowner so a distant view willhave to do for now
