Paull Holme Tower, Thorngumbald Road, Paull - East Riding of Yorkshire (UA)

Mid C15 three storey brick tower house in a scheduled moated site, originally part of a larger manorial complex. A unique survival for this region. Restored and re-roofed in 1871, but it subsequently became ruinous again. Historic England Grant has supported the reinstatement of the roof and the rebuilding of the crenellations. Some further repairs are required to low-level brickwork and the ground floor vault.
