Crawley Tower (with cottage inside), Crawley, Hedgeley - Northumberland (UA)

Remains of an early-C14 tower house, with a C18 cottage built inside when the ruins were altered to form an eye-catcher on the Shawdon Estate. Constructed of massive squared stone; the cottage with a slate roof. The interior is now gutted and contains structural propping. The tower is vacant with no identified use, although the adjacent buildings form part of a working farm. A budget for project development work has been identified.
