Holditch Court Tower, Thorncombe - Dorset (UA)

This monument includes part of a fortified house situated within a farmyard. The part of the fortified house survives as a three-storeyed roofless rectangular plan tower with a projecting circular stair-turret in the south west angle and stands to a height of approximately eight metres. Historic England funded a project development grant in 2018 for the removal of the ivy, a condition survey and measured survey which are underway. It is anticipated this will inform a future repair project.
