Formerly a lodge to Vale Royal Abbey, now disused: early C19 for Lord Delamere. Ashlar red sandstone, no roof surviving. Circular tower of 2-storeys. Plinth, embattled parapet on corbel table. Blocked lancet windows with label moulds and a 2-centred arched doorway with remains of original studded door, below; cross-loopholes above.
