Brick Tower (Formerly listed as Shot Tower) TQ 17 SW 3/1 2.9.52

II

2. Late C18 or early C19. Tapering brick tower in English bond. Built like a tower mill. Roofed with lead. Door and lower windows have painted arches with weatherboarded spandrels and stone keystone. Interior derelict and no floors. Stands in the middle of trees, which have grown up all round, beside one of the streams into which the River Crane is here divided by dams and sluices. This one belonged to the old Hounslow Powder Mills and is the only surviving building. (The mills were in all probability the first gunpowder mills in England, dating from the time of the Battle of Crecy, 1315.) Previously incorrectly listed as a Shot Tower. Perhaps instead a grinding mill.
